Re: I'll Throw up some more Exhibits Durango-Silverton Train

I rode this one when I was about 12 years old, and took my kids to ride it when they were about the same age. I liked riding in the open air. A very scenic ride.

hunting hemi's in that 66GTO.

Fast car,

Now how can anyone compete with that?  The real Thomas!

You win, game over;-)

Den (aka slow car, a Prius, almost embarrassed, but I did have a red 65 GTO coupe for 3 years in my early 20's).  What fun!

In 1980 my wife and I did a 2 month trip around the us camping in our van. We thought $10 apiece for the train ride was too much money. After we got home I swore if I ever got thee again I didn't care how much it cost I would Ride it!

Well in 2010 after my wife passed away my son graduated college and I took him on a 7 week trip around the US. We went on it but then it Cost me $100 a piece! But was still worth it!!! IMO

Re: ***Mini Challenge #532*** Three Entries

Three shots from a visit to the National Railway Museums at York and Shildon...

Detail from the connecting rods of Locomotive 60163 Tornado. A Peppercorn Class A1 built from scratch by a group of rich enthusiasts between 1994 and 2008 and photographed in the Main Hall at York. She is the only Peppercorn class loco in existence, since British Rail scrapped all 49 of the originals in 1966 as they abandoned steam power. In April 2017 she became the first steam locomotive to officially travel at 100mph on a British track for more than 50 years. If it is at all possible for you to go to see this loco, do it! She is exquisite.

A snowplough - built in 1891 as No. 12 of a batch used by the North Eastern Railway before this company was absorbed into the London and North Easter Railway Co. [LNER] It lives at Shildon.

If you collect Railway signs and the like, you'd probably kill to get your hands on this - it's on the wall in the Shildon Museum and no other place on earth is entitled to put up such a sign.

Can't really help you there. Bill, that's what the guys who built it chose. It's one of several colours lifted from the liveries of the various constituent companies that amalgamated to form the London and North Eastern Railway and was usually called Apple Green...

Exhibit - Tornado.
