Apologies for more copy and paste, but I watch train stuff and YT keeps suggesting more. (no complaints)

Short blast with generic hippie music wrecking it:

More about the turbojet loco:

btw, A. E. Perlman is reviled for scrapping so many steam locos unnecessarily and denying opportunities for preservation.

This may interest steam locomotive enthusiasts in east central PA. The Reading Blue Mountain & Northern RR is rolling out their newly restored Reading T-1 class #2102 steam locomotive on 5/25:

It will run on their main line between Reading and Jim Thorpe, PA.


For anyone interested in taking pictures, there will be a 4 hour lay over at the Jim Thorpe station from noon till 4PM.

These are pics I took of their Baldwin #425 Light Pacific class locomotive making the run in 2020:

I might try to hit that.
Will be in the middle of first cutting, so usually don’t have any time to spare.

Those were the auxiliary engines off the B-36 bombers. The shutters around the inlets in one of the pictures were the tip off.

Unsure if already posted but this is a pretty neat display, engine, ore car and caboose, in the background they were moving and switching ore cars loaded with taconite on Marquette Michigan's remaining working ore dock, very nice area down by the lake imo. I'll try to stop next time to see if a lakers down there getting loaded, And stop by the Marquette great lakes maritime museum located nearby which unfortunately wasn't open lol.
