Not really a mystery, and purported to be the world's largest...but can anyone guess what this is?  ;)

The fireman looks relatively calm in this photo... but what's going on here?

General Discussion / The Lion
« on: January 07, 2010, 07:15:54 AM »
We've talked about the Lion in the past, and wouldn't it be neat to see the locomotive restored for Maine's bicentennial, etc. Here's an idea for transporting the Lion around by rail...not just throughout Maine, but all around New England...

The linked photo shows the Southern's "Best Friend of Charleston" replica being transported by Norfolk Southern.

Massachusetts' Two Footers / Billerica & Bedford pictures
« on: November 30, 2009, 12:05:15 PM »
I had the chance to stop by the B&B the other day (evening, actually) and took a few pictures. Nice signage at the beginning of the restored section of track. With the leaves all over the ground covering the ties, if one didn't know any better they might think these rails have been here for 100 years. The rail pile is a sure sign we'll be seeing more track being put down on the B&B. It's GREAT that the town is so supportive of this effort.
A short distance away the Friends of Bedord Depot have cosmetically restored an old Boston & Maine RDC passenger-baggage car. The car is electrified, with markers and number boards lit, as well as having interior lights on. It was twilight and I couldn't help taking a couple of pictures, and giving the impression of movement in the process:

Two Footers outside of the US / Interesting slogan on the tender...

The slogan on the tender says: "It is better to starve a whole day long than to lighten fire in the woods for one second"
