Happy Easter!

Frohe Ostern!


Eastbound N&W 611 rolls over the Roanoke River near Stewartsville, Va. on 04-23-2017, on it's way back to Spencer.

Heavy hoar frost brought me out in the cold this day to capture some of the beauty.

Railroad Motorcar, sometimes called a “Speeder”. Smaller models, like this one, were used routinely to inspect the many miles of track for defects. Larger versions would carry half a dozen workers and pull a few trailers loaded with spikes and tools, to handle track maintenance. Although these “speeders” have a top speed of only about 30 m.p.h., they were so nicknamed because compared to the manually powered pump cars they replaced, they were much faster.


Thanks to Brian Plant for a last minute tip off, I was able to get the following series of photos.

An eastbound Rio Grande freight climbs the steep 3-percent grade of Tennessee Pass at Mitchell on a July 1984 morning. A total of 18,600 horsepower of EMD locomotives is clawing at the rails with this manned mid-train helper set; behind GP40 No. 3083 is a GP40-2, a SD40T-2, a SD45, and two more SD40T-2s. Combined with the 20,850 h.p. on the head end, this freight required almost 40,000 h.p. to climb the pass!

Route 66 November 11, 1926-June 27, 1985

It lasted less than half a second that someone from the past? came to take a picture of me. I was late again. Don't even know for sure if it was from the future or the past. BTW this was a very dangerous warp for that persone too.
