We've picked up the Silver Solarium car; off to the west coast.

this is one of my fav photos with the train stream and mist all around--I can imagine being right there.

Traveling by train. Do it. Never forget it. Especially lovely OLD trains. Like from Montreal to Quebec City in Canada -- or trains in Europe. Or even the fancy car to Washington DC from NYC-- serves drinks, lit better, more comfort, if you do it once -- do it in style, have something to remember. As Baltimore slides by like a watercolor painting with a Fan on it. hberg

Union Pacific 844 was one of 10 locomotives that were ordered by Union Pacific in 1944 and designated as class FEF-3. The FEF-3 class represented the epitome of dual-service steam locomotive development; funds and research were being concentrated into the development of diesel-electric locomotives. Designed to burn coal, they were converted to run on fuel oil. Like the earlier FEF-2 class, FEF-3 locomotives were designed as passenger engines.

New York Central Steam Locomotive # 5405 - Many steam locomotive types are associated with a particular railroad. In the case of the 4-6-4, the railroad was the New York Central. They were beautiful and fast; and for nearly three decades, they hauled famous passenger trains up the four-track water level route, North from New York City, along the scenic Hudson River for which they were named.

It pisses me off when people post awesome pics like this with absolutely no context. Now doesn't it drive you crazy to NOT KNOW why this frickin locomotive is steaming down the track on fire??? It sure drives ME crazy.
