Your images of these old steam locos are excellent as usual. :-)

The trouble with the Heartland Flyer, you can't tell whether it's coming or going.

I was a hair late on the trigger with the first photo. :(

Many many thanks, your comments are really appreciated.

We are very fortunate in the UK to have all these wonderful steam locomotives preserved for people such as me to photograph, so a big thank you to all the preservationists who made it possible.

Very nice! Looking at all those switches reminds me of when I was training co-workers on switch lock out procedures at the paper mill where I worked, and they couldn't figure out which way the train would go by looking at the switch.

Nice! That's a whole of grain behind those engines. At least they look like the grain cars I loaded many years ago while working at a grain elevator.

So you were training switchers for switching trains?


There are many answers to question.

No, when the unloading shed was ready for a switchout, we had to lock out the switch so the train could only enter one or the other warehouses. That way we could keep unloading the track that wasn't ready. Some of the co workers just couldn't understand switches.

I was unloading a boxcar one night, got down to the last stack of bales (baled cardboard boxes), grabbed the top two with the clamp truck and backed out of the car. When I lowered the load to floor lever there was a raccoon sitting on the top bale. Always wondered if it had gotten shut in somewhere else and rode all the way to Valliant, or if it wandered in while I was doing something else.
