    I am sorry for the poor reproduction quality of these pictures, I would like to share them with you anyway. My beloved late father made them in March, 1966, I was three years and nine months back then. The other boy is my brother.

    Have you heard of the construction of a PRR T1 4-4-4-4? I think by 2030 they won't be able to find a railroad that would allow them to attempt a world speed record on their road. Not NS, or CSX, or anywhere.

    Thank you. It was my 1923 2hp Witte that I sold a few years back to make room.
    Yeah, wish I had it back. Sigh...

    Some HO scale steam... REAL SOUND from Brad Miller (Mobile Fidelity) recorded in 1957 on the Blue Ridge.

    Did that tractor even "know" the sled was back there? :)

    On a record album related note, I picked up these train LPs the other day at GW Buy the Pound. They are from the UK, New Zealand and Australia. A few days later I found two early Mobile Fidelity train records.

    Mobile Fidelity 's "Ghost Trains" is where my recording came from.

    Here are some shots of some of the K-36 steam locomotives used by the Cumbres & Toltec Railroad.

    We took the train ride between Antonito, CO and Chama, NM earlier this month - fun, fantastic, gorgeous.

    The outside frame counterweights are really cool. I NEED to see them and the D&RGW narrow gauge steamers.

    I got a CD titeled

    "Sounds of the Great America Railroad - On The Atchison, Topeka & Santa Fe"

    'From a distant train whistle... to the clickety-clack of wheels on rail and the roar of a mighty steam engine... get ready for a memorable adventure in sound!'

    One of the last test runs of 611 before entering service after the overhaul. After it comes to a stop you can watch the Baker valve gear going from forward to 'neutral'. The crew are seeing that all the bearing are getting lubrication by touching the various bearings to see if they are running hot.
