Re: Posting.

Methinks it is just an early indication of the future of train enthusiasm. Sad to say, a harbinger of things to come.

Re: How PTC Looks In A Steam Engine Cab

Re: L.A. Times news article July 5, 2021.

I have to ask; How far off is the future? At some point, Diesel fuel will be very expensive, what power will be used to replace the internal combustion power? Electrical seems to be feasible and battery is possibly cheaper than stringing overhead wires or laying a 3rd rail to supply the electrons. B...

Even a static photo of that thing in motion, even not under its own power, is... is... is...

Re: WW&F video on Utube

Thanks for a very entertaining video, lots of steam from that little locomotive, pretty fall colors, nice reflection shot. The word "timeless" gets over used, but I think it would apply here at least to when that truck was built. Loved it. Nice sharp and square exhaust too. Excellent oper...

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.
