Re: 261 Pulls Gourmet express on the former Milwaukee Road

PTC, people-trains-crash... It sucks crashes happened, and things change. I'm thinking shortline steam will survive. But probably not on the mainlines.

Re: C&O 2716 YouTube page

I'm not sure, but I think the 2716 folks will have a non-PTC shortline to run on. I think it's nearby them too. Yeah, hopefully something good can come through. If the E9A has PTC, and is in the consist, maybe the 261 will be allowed out to lead on the mainline? It makes sense, but what do I know? T...

Re: 261 Pulls Gourmet express on the former Milwaukee Road

Yes, it does! ;) Over the years Steve has changed the appearance of the locomotive. I didn't get to see it run for the Milwaukee convention, and it looked so cool. He sure keeps the locomotive looking interesting. I liked the silver firebox and lack of running board stripe. I'm sure the train will b...

C&O 2716 YouTube page

[youtube] https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCT4NrUTMJI4PFw0-Rfkj0Iw [/youtube] These folks have some great videos. Things are moving forward. It's great to see CSX give them a C&O caboose, that CSX restored, and a former L&N EMD SW1500. First the Chicago Cubs win the World Series, and now CSX...

Re: Terms

Sometimes I miss Trainorders, but then I start remembering the negativity, and other issues. No thanks. Been gone a few years. "There are no dumb questions." is something I try to remember. We need to see each others humanity, and be chill with others. There's a human being typing these me...

Re: Milwaukee Road 261

Yeah, not too sure about PTC. I hope the 261 gets to keep running. It's brought so much happiness and goodness to so many. The Christmas trains are really special, and I hope they continue too. In that photo, that's Steve's arm on the left. I rode with him and his Dad to chase the train that day. Go...

Great photos and post. It is too bad the 2816 wasn't there as well.
