Still more Philadelphia Suburban Transportation Co. trolleys from September 1, 1957:

A string of PSTC 70-series lightweights, led by 79, stored for the weekend at 60th St. Terminal, Upper Darby on 9/01/1957:


Center-door heavywight interurban No. 71 beside the Llanerch carbarn of 9/01/1957:


The "let it snow" crowd, PSTC 60, 63 and 65, plus a snow sweeper, in storage awaiting Winter at Llanerch:


I will be at the PRRT&HS convention next Thursday, so anyone feel free to start the fun.  8)

Here's some for the Milwaukee and CNW fans.  Taken Sept 73 in Milwaukee while waiting for the ferry to Ludington, MI (a rail/car ferry).

I was down in Princess Anne looking at a renovation project at a house that looked across a field to the NS Delmarva Division main stem.  A local happened along to switch the propane joint out by the highway.






I'm pretty sure that's an ex-CR SD-40-2, but someone with a better eye for such things can chime in if I'm wrong.  This morning I got some great pictures of the Maryland and Delaware, but I haven't uploaded them yet.  They are infinitely more interesting than My Little Pony.

Potato House, Newport, NC


Last railroad owned building in Newport. The railroad is currently renting the building to the Newport Consolidated School Alumni. It was orginally painted gray.

Yea .. there is nothing like a rental car, no map, and just the tracks to guide you by :)

I really like Picassa .. not sure where Google will take this in the future .. I'm sure there will be a pay option somwhere .. but for now .. its a boon for the train folks .

Also trying out Picasa.







All taken at my favourite Loco Shed in Scotland, sadly now demolished and the site in use as an Intermodal Terminal, during the Summer of 1986.

More to come when i get round to scanning them!
