Dear All,
Everyone could benefit from Paul M.'s wisdom. The fact that he is about twelve (I had the plesure of meeting him in Fort Worth) should give many pause...

Paul M : Nice to meet you. Do you have a favorite steam loco? Let me hear about it. Don't be put off by all those who would correct spellings and the like; this is for fun and enjoyment, and it comes as it comes.

Sheldon : Thank you for the additional facts about your favorite loco. It makes it that much more interesting to know about.

Paul M,

Seasaltchap (Stewart) and I are now getting along just fine. Getting along does not mean saying things you do not believe just so others won't get mad or upset. Adults, or young adults who are mature can (or should be able to) disagree with each other about some things but than get past it and work/play just fine with each other. It is not good for people to not say what they believe just because someone else may not like it.

Bach Man,

I have the utmost respect for your position as moderator, and have no problem with any of you delete decisions, however my own personal compass prevents me for "going along to get alone". That is a path that has already done far to much damage to the world.

Stewart,

I am glad you found that background info of interest. So as you can see, it is partly the plainness of those "powered box cars" that makes them interesting to some.

And, they where pioneered in the same time period that many railroads in the US also streamlined steam locos and passenger cars. There is a whole other story about the diesel's progression from steamlined cab unit to utilitiaran road switcher with side walkways. The era I model is also in the heart of that change as well.

Sheldon

You may be the champion cabbage grower, but I know this guy in South Wales who is the champion pot maker for boiling your cabbages.

LD303 : I am surprised that my, "I was hoping this string would be for Steam only" should raise such uglyness from you to usher me off my own thread.

You have your diesel postings: I was trying to raise the education from you to give us all more than just pretty pictures.

Stewart,

Oh boy, do I!

My favorite is Texas & Pacific's 2-10-4.
I-1, I-1a, I-1b, I-1c, and I-1b classes
There were 70 T&P 2-10-4s built;
Road numbers were 600- 669
All of them were built by Lima from November 1925 until 1929
Only surviving locomotive is T&P #610
#610 was restored for the American Freedom Train in the seventies
#610 is currently at the Texas State Railroad
All of the T&P's 2-10-4s were Freight locomotives,
but #610 now carries passengers on the TXSRR

#623 on October 26, 1930


Famous #610 at the Texas State Railroad on March 3rd, 2001.


I would have posted more photos, but I guess two photos are enough. Undecided

I like Big Boys because they're big, and 9000s because they're neglected.

Sheldon, Stewart...

Just stop bickering. This is getting stupid.  Angry Note the "I do not need this lecture" thread has been deleted. This started out a fine thread.... Now it's starting to look like " I do not need this lecture II" Sad
I agree, what is the bickering all about anyways?
To me it seems totally unneeded, your acting like children, oops thats me...

KCR Clyde G12.

There is a picture of Sir Alexander in http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Image:KCR-siralexander.JPG


They are Australian clones or variations of EMD.  Clyde became part of GE by the 70s. 

Here are the G12's stats:
