All Aboard! Trains Anyone?

Recommended Posts

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


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.

You guys just like the part where the train goes into the tunnel, be honest.
