Re: Sweet Steam: US Sugar Debuts Its 4-6-2

The news article referenced is datelined "Clewiston, Fla", which is on the southwestern side of Lake Okeechobee (the big lake in southern Florida). I followed an extensive rail network on Google Earth that runs through the (what I assume are) Sugar Cane Fields... lots of track to run the t...

Re: More Steam on You Tube

In the world of model trains, it is often said there is prototype for everything. I would scoff at that, asking where it the prototype for the Lionel pink train made for girls? Oops.. I stand corrected... see 00:23:35 of the video. Daing, looks just like the Lionel "girls" train.

Re: March 21, 2002

I have to qualify this by saying I have never seen 4449 in person and am not fond of the color orange. I am with you in thinking 4449 looks much better in the AFT colors than the original daylight colors. For that matter I think it looked better black. I will go crawl in a hole and hide now with th...

Mark, It really doesn't matter where it was taken... it is just a plain ol' ordinary Dismal. Who cares about them thingys?

Re: Best looking Hudsons .... ever

NOW! You guys are talking BEAUTIFUL! Hudsons like those are scrumptious! (As long as they are not streamlined!) I also like Mikados and Berkshires!

Re: Holiday Challenge

Since I don't have a favourite RR, I can name any road! But, I'm with John... ONLY steam locomotives are good looking! Even the silly streamlined upside down bathtub ones, or the cutesy C.P. Huntington (total bleah!) is better looking than any and all Dismals :| . The only redeeming paint scheme for...

Re: OT, Happy Thanksgiving

I'd say you're gettin' old, Mark, but if you are still stuck behind (instead of leading) the slow drivers then you ain't that old enough yet to know to slow down in bad weather. I posted the following on another web site and feel like sharing it here... ----------------------- I have turkey 3 or 4 t...

Re: How Much Sound Travels - If You Want it to

"MORE COOL THAN TRAINS"??????? Go wash your mouth out with some steam oil. My problem is that my left ear hears low frequencies better than high, and my right ear hears high frequencies better than low. Makes it very difficult to find something in the sky because I can't locate it by sound...

Re: How Much Sound Travels - If You Want it to

My grandfather (a farmer) used to be able to tell the weather by train sounds. If he could hear the train whistle (yes, steam whistle) as the train crossed "Rush Creek" then it was going to rain the next day. As for you -- well... you have trains in your blood, thus you can hear them. Your...
