All Aboard! Trains Anyone?

I like trains especially the old steam engines. Here is a short video clip of the Wilmington and Western railroad here in Delaware. I can hear the train whistle blow from my house when it goes by. Enjoy the scenic beauty of Delaware as you watch.

I love trains. There's jus something about seeing an old steam engine chugging along, or even seeing a modern diesel-electric humming down the track pulling countless freight cars from location to location. I really do like trains. I even have a model railroad (although currently not set up, no room). Although I have a somewhat great alternative in RailRoad Tycoon 2....

Great Vid PCS. They really take it easy on that old Atlantic <the head engine>. She's probably dying to get out and run again... those were 70-90mph engines back in their day and here she is running at 10% throttle. That slantback switcher probably maxes out around 50 though.

I've had a lifelong love of steam engines cultivated by growing up along the New Hope and Ivyland Railroad

Edit:

My Octobers and Novembers are usually filled with trips to the local steam lines. I visit the

often and have even gotten to drive the engine in this video. I'm...friendly.... with one of the engineers not shown in the video.

Second week of October I can usually be found at the East Broad Top Railroad

Interestingly, I'm most-fascinated by trains in and around the Pittsburgh area ... what with the Horseshow Curve in Altoona, etc.
