Re: Bessmer and Lake Erie 643 is Finally Safe

Definitely landlocked. Though close to the mainline right next to it. About 80 feet if the scale on google maps is to be trusted.

Re: So Long Shoreham (MN) Roundhouse

Discovered this roundhouse by complete accident while on my way to a job interview many years back, about 2010. Sorry to see it go. As a lifelong railfan, I could have watched this structure have nothing done with it for years from behind a fence - but I know that's not reality. :P Glad that things ...

Re: Bessmer and Lake Erie 643 is Finally Safe

Someone shared this on Facebook, year unknown (though I think it's probably 90s). 643 Operating Under Her Own Power https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xClGOdkJji4&lc=z23nv1crwvfwj5o4u04t1aokgeh5ansgx1dbqywfqkmfrk0h00410.1565045864001122&fbclid=IwAR1SoVwtgXpQPNtb9Gd2AbG_UCtQjEwmxwVcVuOtNayc0eqqk...

Re: Bessmer and Lake Erie 643 is Finally Safe

Saw that this morning. Was wondering if they'll do anything beyond a static resto, but I began to think about the AOS in general... all of Jerry's 4 OCRR locomotives are stored there aren't they? Are they all just static displays now, or do they run? Obviously, now it's a very public museum. :) But ...

Re: Has anyone here...

I'll be there tomorrow as well. I plan on trying to park in Parking Lot A, though I've got a bad feeling Kellogg is going to be jammed.

Re: Be safe out there

I must have missed this thread in the UP Official Steam page. You try to encourage good stuff, and everyone having a good time... and there's just always one that gets a bug up their butt to do something audacious. In the "Thread For 4014 Videos" on our page, I just put up a clip on page 2...

Also changed the title of the thread a little to encompass all 2019 runs.

Re: Thread for 4014 Videos - First Runs and Trip to Ogden

4014 leaving Pine Bluff, Wyoming. At 15:30 Ed stops the locomotive, walks out ahead of the train and gives a railfan a talking to. The story is - he left a camera on the rails. Which would mean he intended to reach in and grab it at the last second. I'm sure Ed was nice and professional to the guy, ...

Re: Thread for 4014 Videos - First Runs and Trip to Ogden

Adding a couple more.

This one is from May's run. Very high quality pacing footage.

This one was posted today. 4014 apparently hauling 21 freight cars.

Re: Moving Big Boy 4012

The source is long gone from the internet or I'd cite it here, but the move of the 4018 into the former Age of Steam in Dallas, TX (now Museum of the American Railroad in Frisco) involved a pretty tight curve and a section of split rail at least once. Specifically a section of rail started to turn o...

Re: Big Boy IS going to Duluth this July

I plan to be out at the station in St. Paul on the Thursday that it will be displayed there. Can anyone recommend where to park? Although it will be a weekday I'll be operating under the assumption that a bigger-than-normal crowd will be out there that day.

Re: Thread for 4014 Videos - First Runs and Trip to Ogden

Yep, I agree. I call it music with a 'stack-talk' feel. I tried your song, I feel ya. It works well. So I've added it to my list. I have many classic and modern stack-talk songs I default to when in the mood but the one song I default to (below) is a modern (year 2000) hard rock piece that most peop...

Norfolk Southern Wreck (video)

So fortunate there weren't any major injuries. Not steam related, but recent and pretty harrowing wreck.

I saw...somebody on Facebook claimed it was also passing through St. Paul, though he hasn't yet divulged times and dates to me. EDIT: Nevermind, I see it in the Trains article. Need to get my eyes checked, d*mn diabetes. :( http://trn.trains.com/news/news-wire/2019/06/04-minnesota-museum-confirms-bi...
