Re: Santa Train Again at SPUD

Winter steam, with its spectacular plumes of steam puffing from the seals, the open cylinder valves and up the stack, to all the fans that have retired to the luxury hovel to sip hot-toddies by the fireside, is well worth the price of admission... but not so much so for the poor hapless chap that ha...

Re: Santa Train Again at SPUD

I am assuming then that it is parked off to the right, just outside of the camera's view. Besides, it is so dark and the camera resolution so poor that I doubt if anyone could tell that you are napping in the cab, but I suppose if you were to be lying on the side rods, someone might notice you and c...

Re: Santa Train Again at SPUD

Ah HA! I misread the info on the 261 site... I thought the train went west of the depot to the "North Pole". So the photos in this thread (and the ones I sent to you, Mark, in the e-mail) are when the train is at the "North Pole". I was thinking it went the other way and could be...

Re: Santa Train Again at SPUD

The "elves" I saw were along side the train at the east end where they park at the depot. Some were carrying 'protest' signs and two others had sticks with some sort of floppy object on the top end and they were walking along side the train moving the top of the post up to the windows and ...

Re: Santa Train Again at SPUD

On the web cam, I see some "elves" (I assume) carrying signs along side the first passenger car when it is parked there... what do the signs say?

Re: Latest from UP on 4014 (Official Video)

Don't click on the title... You should be seeing a window below where Milhouse wrote "Ed takes us on a tour of the work on the front frame." In that window it says: "Watch on YouTube" and a button below that, that has the same words in it. Click on that button to go to YouTube to...

Re: Twin Cities & Western Says "No" To Southwest LRT Deal

If the county can see that it makes money for merchants in the area, they will be much more amenable to it.

Steve Lee referred to the accident where 3985 struck some hoppers as, "we remodeled some hopper cars for them".

Re: UP tracks

I am sure the 3985 has run on 'foreign' rail (CSX I think) as a 'borrowed' engine to look like an engine that used to run on those rails as part of a "Christmas Train". I think there are videos of it on YouTube. I am pretty sure the 844 (8444) has done so also.

Yes, that helps, but what about in Iowa? Where does it start and what route does it follow. Does it originate (as a named route) south Iowa?
