Re: March 24, 2002

You are bringing back great memories, John. I sure remember the US flags being flown on that return trip. We must have been fairly close together for the Willow Creek runby, as my photos resemble yours. Years later I found the place to get "the" shot with the whole trestle and train, but '...

Re: Amtrak Continues To Play CEO Musical Chairs

Mark, do you think we could convince Steve, Doyle and other steam folks to petition the new guy to reinstate the Amtrak insurance for mainline steam coverage?

Re: Alas, poor Union Pacific 3985

I have seen 844 and 3985 together at two RailFairs in Sacramento, and chased 3985 when it ran up through Oregon with Doyle McCormack at the throttle. Maybe I'll put some pix over on my "Old Stuff" thread.

Here is a memory of the McCloud, now pretty much gone, tracks torn up, this back in 2008.

Re: Took a ride on the Southwest Chief

After my adventure with 4449 in 2009, traveling to Minnesota, I boarded Amrak in the middle of the night to return to Portland, and in the morning woke up to find myself in the midst of a big group of Mennonites. They are great people and I had a wonderful time with all of them including the little ...

Re: Old Stuff

Friend Kelvin Schultes saw this and suggested I dig out some pics from the Grand Opening of Steamtown, back in 1995. I did not try to find the negatives and have scanned some poor quality prints. Here is Susquehanna 142 after arrival at the site.

Re: Old Stuff

Just to second John's comment that the 700 was one of the best looking 4-8-4s, here is a near side view. I have others that I can't find, but she sure is a handsome locomotive, currently undergoing her 15 year or 1472 inspection, but soon will be operational again at the Oregon Rail Heritage Center.

Old Stuff

The site seems to be quiet, and I don't have any new stuff to add, so thought I would start putting "old stuff" taken back when I got out often to fan. This one is from the 2005 NRHS convention in Portland, OR, featuring two stars, 4449 and 700, both of which participated in steam events a...
