OK, I went to the museum yesterday and had a good day. First, I got to help the engineer inspect, get ready, and start the EMD MRS-1. It takes 2 to start it! I learned qute a bit during that 30 minutes. Here's the link to this loco. http://www.sdrm.org/roster/diesel/d-1820/index.html After warm up, we hooked up the train, did the brake test, loaded the passengers and I got to ride the cab the whole trip. After lunch, I started training as trainman, which is basically an on-board tour guide and docent. Everybody must be a qualiied trainman before being a brakeman before you can be a conductor before you can be a diesel engineer before you can be a steam fireman before you can be a steam engineer. Everybody has to pay their dues! The topic of various EMD's and GP this and thats and dash eights and geeps and so forth came up and here in lays the problem. I guess evrybody became interested in trains at an early age (for me, late steam and F-7's) and that lasted until puberty when cars and girls got in the way and became the major focus of my life. This lasted until I had kids of my own when I had an excuse to start looking at trains again. Now, there are more kinds of diesels than Carter has pills and I don't know any of them on site! They all look alike to me except for the F units. What I need is a web site that has pictures and brief descriptions of diesel locomotives over the last few decades. Ideas?
