Dear X-Air and WeatherCat railfans, . . . .

Only time there is any steam on the NS is when they hit another 4-wheeler that stops on the tracks and the radiator leaks! Apparently, many folks have never even seen a train... until it's too late, anyway. [rolleyes2] [banghead]

What a darn shame!  According to Wikipedia, this beautify used to pull excursion trains on the Norfolk Southern Railway from 1987 to 1991:



The Norfolk and Western 1218 was one of the triumphs of American steam locomotive design.  Now that Union Pacific is actively restoring one of their Big Boy locomotives, perhaps Virginia Museum of Transportation will get the itch to restore the 1218 so it too can be a fully operational steam locomotive.

Cheers, Edouard  [cheers1]

Dear X-Air and WeatherCat railfans,

Do I live too close to the railroad?
I thought a mile would be enough to protect me from these "expresses"!

[wink] . . . . Well there is a very simple test really.  Can you inhale that delightful scent of steam!

If not then clearly you aren't close enough!! lol(1)

Cheers, Edouard  [cheers1]

Perfect math! ThU5:-) Way ahead of my air time, I barely managed 36 years!

Great answers. Many thanks. 44 years of pushing tin was enough for me. Glad all of my landings equal my take-offs!

I love the Weather34 template. I switched over to Meteobridge just so I can have the option to use it.
