A to Z (con't) aka: Where did it go???
What happened to my thread "A to Z"?
we crapped out the server!
I tried posting an "N"- NG (no good)- bummer!
NJ Dot- in "Disco" colors. An ex-Reading FP-7 (my favorite loco, railroad- the RDG that is, next to the GG-1 and several other hundreds tied for 1st place...)
Take two- they're small.
Coming and going.
My first encounter with a Reading FP-7 was when I was knee-high to my mommy. I was on the apron of thew Wissahickon Station in Philly. I turned to my left and this behemoth loco raced past me- seemingly inches away- I fell back against my mom's skirt, clutched her leg and practically pooped my pants (I was maybe 5). It was the "push-pull") heading into center city.
I am fond of that early memory- the pic above is close excepting the distance and colors. My first close shave.
Happy Mother's Day mom!
I couldn't find it either, even with the search. I send a E Mail to Shamus and asked if he could find it and put a sticky on it. to keep it on the current page
'course, back to the "m"s
Here's a Metro North RDC going thru foreign territory in Suffern, NY.
i wasn't quite done with the "m"s yet...
Thank you very much. The Management!
I know what you mean Dan...
I had a thread in the N/Z forum where I was posting updates on My Poor Fork Mining layout, & apparently it's gone too...oh well...ce' la vie...$#@% computers!
Yeah Charlie, your's is gone too! Wonder what happened (somebody hacking?).
It's wierd, I had just posted a couple of updates this morning, & then started having all this trouble opening forums & posting...I must've killed it myself, by bringing back to the top again...?
Not got a damn clue where this A to Z thread went to, nobody but myself or Dave Hagan can delete from Photography. I didn't do it and I am sure Dave didn't. So ???
Hi guys, we had to run a diagnostic tool to repair errors in the database. Unfortunately this tool deletes any thread that it deems corrupt, so we've lost a number of threads.
We're really sorry to lose some great threads but it was done only after all other avenues were explored.
No problem, Dave!
I kinda miss having that thread, but I do have all the pics on disc, & besides, the thing had been around for quite a while, & was taking up a lot of space that can now be used for new things.
It was a small price to pay for the good of the forum!
And it was "corrupt", you say...?
Gosh, don't tell my Mom!
Happy Mothers' Day, Mom!
And to all the Moms!
What's gone is gone!
At least we can continue from here if I remember correctly we were at 'O'. Heres a couple of 'P' shots. This first one is of the Prescott & Northwestern at Prescott, Arkansas.
Here is my other 'P'. It is Pacififc Electric #717. This unit is currently living at the Orange Empire Railroad Museum in Perris, CA.
Well, the only 'Q' railroad I could find was this shot of the Quincy Bay. I had never even heard of this RR until I saw this picture.
RImike will probably hate me for beating him to 'R', but Rock Island locomotives sure can look nice.
And the ever-impressive #652
Here's my contribution to the letter 'R'.
It's the Roaring Camp & Big Trees RR in Felton, CA. Theres nothing like a narrowgauge SHAY
heres the going away shot
Ok, so we're going on 'A' to 'Z' on another thread!
Still for 'R': Here is one more nice electric narrow gauge oldie from Switzerland.
She belongs to the 'RhB', the Rhaetian Railways (Rhätische Bahn) - a widespread meter gauge net in the Eastern Alps of Switzerland (serving famous St. Moritz - yep, the town which hosted the 2003 ski world championships.)
This is a 'Ge 6/6' - 'G' means Narrow gauge, 'e' = electric, and '6/6' = six powered axles of six total. It's quite obvious why this loco is known as the 'Rhaetian Crocodile'. She's restored and used on railfan trains. Here she's pictured with a beautifully restored Salon car in CIWL colors.
