    Snowy Rails

    Due to a recent fairly heavy snowfall (for these parts), metal detecting and bottle hunting has been somewhat difficult. So while the ground was blanketed in a nice white layer, I went to the busy Norfolk Southern Piedmont Division not too far from my house and began shooting pics. These are some of my best shots. Thanks for looking!

    Blessings,

    If these are to be trains of the past, what does that make this then?

    Yup, It IS so much nicer being indoors looking at the tracks in the snow, then being out there all day working on them.

    That is a new photo of an old train. This is an old photo of an old train. In a 100 years your photo will be an old photo of an old train.

    The steamer in the picture I took isn't actually old at all as it's a replica built in 2009! Good design though in both pics. Can't go wrong with a good ol' American 4-4-0!

    Huh, Where and who built that? Seems you'd need one heck of a specialty shop to produce one like that today. I guess you can still buy a new steam locomotive in China. I saw some show about old rail lines resurrected with period trans for tourists to ride. This one in Iowa couldn't economically restore an old locomotive, so they instead ordered an old looking steam engine from China for a lot less than doing all the work restoring an old American made one. We've got around 3 old narrow gauge train rides out here in the mountains. It's pretty cool to watch and listen to them smoke, chug and blow their whistle through the mountains. It's like a scene from 100 + years ago.

    Oh, you're talking about Cumbres & Toltec, Durango & Silverton, and the museum in Golden, aren't you? There all on my list to visit... as for the Leviathan, not sure who built it, but I do know it's not a wood burner. It was built as an oil burner, hence the empty tender. Yep, a few coal mines and coal mine railroads in China are still using steam as their main power. They're quite an amazing sight.

    While I enjoy reading about all the treasures, my main interest is digging up the history of my farm
    Awesome! Love trains! Thanks for sharing photos!

    My favorite is seeing the Cumbers & Toltec. It just looks so period of the time. I've seen it and the Durango - Silverton in action quite few times now traveling those areas. I've only road on the Geogrtown Loop.

    Oh, I forgot the Georgetown Loop was there. Also on my list as well.
