Reader Railroad 2-6-2 No. 11 tangled with a truckload of logs on a mixed train run in 1963. Got photos of the wreck and sent these off to TRAINS. only to find that Rosemary Entringer, the Managing Editor of the mag, was aboard.





Note that the tender was lettered "Louisiana & Arkansas" under the Reader Railroad paint.

Next week, York, PA, and México.

Bob,
That slide is begging for some photo shopping. That's a beautiful shot!

Here's old faithful. Let me know if you get tired of seeing the same engine every week... I don't get out much.


This time we catch 1203 crossing Bucktown Road near the Cambridge-Dorchester County Airport. That's Brooks Barrel Company in the background, the last surviving slack cooperage in the lower 48. If you bought a barrel style planter from Home Depot, chances are it was made right here.

I suppose if you have to see the same train day after day, you could do a lot worse than a bright red RS-3!

I've got a Scanner Again !



Shot 5 rolls when Katy and I railfanned Minneapolis/St. Paul last June 2007 and was only able to post 1 last shot from BNSF's huge Northtown Yard and then the old Scanner... "She's dead, Jim" happened in July 2007

Anyway, here's just one shot of the vast subjects to shoot in the Twin Cities.

This is an Ex-Milwaukee Road, Ex Soo Line, Now Canadian Pacific SW1500AC. It looks like a screen is missing on this side, and there is one on the other side! She was working hard, pulling a looonnng cut of cars!

TIS THE SEASON!!

Christmas is celebrated each year by Southern California's Metrolink. Drove out to the Lancaster, California station to see this year's beautiful display, looking for all the world like a Lionel Train set at Christmastime.

Have yet to chase the awe-inspiring spectacle of the Christmas special as it climbs out of Palmdale up to historic Vincent Grade and then through rugged Soledad Canyon, Saugus, Newhall, the San Fernando Valley and on to L.A. Union Passenger Terminal.

I have trains in my genes. After all, I was conceived on the El Capitan somewhere between Chicago and L.A.!

That railroad needs to redo that crossbuck so it reads "railroad crossing" instead of "crossing railroad".


The only thing I want with "CSX" on it is my paycheck

Nah. They do things differently on the Eastern Shore, hence the RS unit, and get along just find.

"Drove out to the Lancaster, California station to see this year's beautiful display, looking for all the world like a Lionel Train set at Christmastime."

Now 45 years ago the Lionel Train set to see was at the Sears store, where a fourth of the toy section contained a massive Lionel display. You could see every Lionel model available there... and a few of the Marx trains as well (despite being a big seller of Lionel products years ago Sears had Marx do an Allstate set with a wrecker and boom tender... sure with I still had it today). And yet I fell in love with the new fangled Arnold N-scale around 1969, right around the time my father died... if he were alive today I think he would understand!!!

Beautiful shots!!!
