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.

Re: Big Boy IS going to Duluth this July

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...

Re: After Big Boy Back to Normal for Steam

Mark... speaking of 261, saw this yesterday on Lionel's website, thought, "What would Mark think of this?" Feel free to call it ugly, btw, no wrong opinions here. I find it strange. http://www.lionel.com/products/milwaukee-legacy-s3-260-6-84067 Basically an S3 with fictional (fictional far...

4014 Derailment Article

Nothing like a million pounds of locomotive to show you deficiencies in your right-of-way. On that note, I'm quite sure everything's going to be fine. http://trn.trains.com/news/news-wire/2019/05/16-big-boy-stubs-its-toe-with-derailment?fbclid=IwAR13xra5NNfssGF4hzWn0bgMrBOE-jgr23MnN9TPa2W3oQCLUKpYjK...

Locomotive that was Restored, but Never Run, Part II

I put up a post about this engine a few years ago as just a curious point of discussion. BL&E 2-10-4 it would seem is for sale. I have no way to verify the authenticity of this auction, but someone brought up the link on Facebook this morning. https://www.ebay.com/itm/233219187439?ul_noapp=true ...

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

Looks like Ed's leaning into the throttle a little more now. :) And my guess is we still haven't seen anything yet.

Re: Ceremonial dignitary hoopla at Ogden.

I do not know this to be fact but perhaps some of them could have been the people that approved the multi-million dollar check for the restoration.

That said, I did notice very little of the steam team's presence, save the photo op at the end.

Footage of the christening in Cheyenne and the start of the journey to Ogden.

Bottle of spirits is broken on her cowcatcher at about 52 seconds, listen closely and you can hear it.

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

Not sure what's up with 844. I know the 4014 had a leak in the same place on the first day (engineer's side, front engine piston rod). At first the leak was very copious, then it settled down and was gone by day 2. At first I incorrectly thought Ed had the front cylinder cocks open on purpose. Someo...
