    I've always liked this photo:) It was taken at Woodford siding on the Tehachapi Pass in California, some time in the late 80's. This train was sitting in the hole awaiting a downhill train. I noticed the nice back lighting and thought I'd take a shot and then when the engineer openned the throttle I knew I was taking the shot!!!:D

    After riding the Footplate of this Loco for 160 miles I took this picture whist she was being coaled. She passed my house every Friday during the 90's pulling a special Capetown train to
    Klerksdorp which is about 100 miles from Johannesburg, and then returned to her Depot with no load. The driver allowed me to take the throttle for 20 miles on a straight section What a thrill!!

    Yolo Shortline Baldwin 0-6-0 in Woodland, Ca. on the overhaul rack.
    This engine has been setting her for several months so I guess the guys doing the overhaul work in their spare time.

    Whadday know!? I was looking through some old pics and found an entry! Taken circa 1986 this is what I referred to as
    "The Mr. Donut Local". Every couple of days this interesting lashup of locos would slow to a stop right behind the Mr. Donut in St. Anthony MN, north of Minneapolis. The crew would grab a bag and some coffee to go. I used to stop there every morning on the way to work. Seeing the train was always a bonus!

    This photo was taken in the winter of 1988-89 I think. The photo was taken at Crum Lynne on the Northeast Corridor.

    Winter will be coming soon. Here is a melancholic look back to last February:

    Thick snowflakes are whirling around while a Swiss commuter train glides by almost soundlessly.
