Little Engines ALCO Norther in action

Post by Highiron » Wed Dec 20, 2017 1:35 pm

Hello all and Merry Christmas

Bleow is a link to a video we shot as a Live Face Book feed last Sunday the 17th and the Central Pasco & Gull Railroad in Florida. Paul Keiser and I were on hand to help out with this years Santa's Candy Cane Express trains. Come ride along as the newest ALCO 4-8-4 Lackawanna 1637 pulls a train of 50+ riders from Carolwood Depot to SANFORD yard.

My Cylinder cock valve did malfunction at the early portion of the video but that just adds to the realizm, enjoy the stack talk and the sounds of our new big whistleAlso notice the clubs automatic signal system that allows for true bi-direction running

Enjoy and Merry Christmas
