These three photos of the Korean National Railways in the early 1960's were taken by my childhood friend, Jim Coon, who unfortunately passed away at age 52. He took them when a 2nd Lieutenant in the Transportation Corps.

KNR Pacific No. 9 passing the enginehouse at Yongson:


KNR No. 9. Jim thought this reminded him of an Erie Pacific:


KNR Consolidation No. 66 - a US Army design  2-8-0 - at the yard in Pusan:


Next week, a couple of New Haven Trap Rock saddletankers.

Those Conrail Geeps are what attracted me to big Blue in the first place.  Beautiful shots of grizzled old veterans...

Yer gettin' good, John.  8)  Like the mood in those snow shots. Looks like those CPL signals in the background aren't long for this world though.

I shouldn't look at those in public places  ;D

Awesome stuff. That's kinda what York and Baltimore are going to look like on the BIG layout, someday, I hope.

It was crappy out today, but warm. So I took some photos:

First this is on my street where I take all my Hot metal car photos. A SD50-2 with 2 dump cars and a backhoe on a flat, been sitting here idling for a week now:



This is just a small part of the rolling mills I pass on my way to work every day. PRR / NS in foreground:



Behind the rolling mills are the blast furnace area. This is a general view:



Close up of the furnace:



Back side:


I took a short video of a mill switcher moving 4 bottle cars, if I up-load I'll post the link.

Awesome footage, Chris. You know those bottle cars are empty since they're running without spacers...

I didn't know they were empty, but I was just guessing. The blast furnace is on one side, then cross the bridge in the video to the rolling mills. I figured they had just poured the hot metal and were running it to the other side to make coils out of it.

The bridge is in the center here:

With th furnace to the left and mills to the right

Next time I will step up the resolution, didn't have time to play with the camera.

Found this on WCI steel:
