Who Remembers the Rock Island Railroad, I found this to be just as interesting as the Pennsy Wheels of Progress Video.

I went down to Toledo OH last Sunday.  This pair of Norfolk Southern trains are Westbound on the old NYC mainline.  Looks like Union Pacific is getting some new engines.!!!!

It's so refreshing to see that so many of us have the train interest as well as cars.  I recently contributed to a book on the town of 7 railroads, Palmer, MA.

When I moved out of my shop, one thing I had to leave behind (and was in a scrap metal dumpster courtesy of the new owner) was a Bethlehem Flange Frog that was the switch that brought the coal cars over to our coal bins.....I heard that the bucket loader had a hard time moving it, so I guess I didn't have a prayer to get it on Polaraco's trailer....would have made a nice lawn ornament. I did manage to collect a lot of railroad hardware over the years, including a six-foot section of 1854 cast iron rail from the Lackawanna Iron and Coal Co. of Scranton, Pa, and we still have a Central Railroad of NJ coal scoop that was probably switched with one of ours by mistake.

Here's an animated video of a couple of CN EMD SD70M-2 Locomotives!. It gives you a real life feeling behind the controls of the 4,300 hp monsters! These units will pull anything!. I used to ride the rails with the ole' man years ago,but they only had 3,000 hp then! i woulda' loved to have a grip on the go handle on that SD70,as it's music to the ears! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=73EGSQYoQ8I&feature=related Glen

Thanks P 

This is the route of the Phoebe Snow in 1912.....and that nice light colored ballast that was laid on the tracks is still there

"The Lackawanna Limited nears Paulina, NJ (between Johnsonburg and
Blairstown) in this 1912 photograph. Note the extra ballast that has
been dropped here, probably due to the settling of the fill."



Here is some of that ballast I collected at the entrance to the Paulinskill Viaduct
