NKP 765’s 74th Birthday!

TrainMan1225 ·
Share your favorite memories with the 2-8-4 to celebrate her 74th birthday! My favorite memory with her was when a volunteer let me, my dad, and a few other guests up into the cab. Keep in mind the 765 was not fully reassembled here, but it was still an amazing experience.

Nice pictures. I especially liked the first ones from the Izaak Walton Inn (Glacier NP). We spent an hour there on the way to the airport at Kalispell, hoping to see any of the trains go through there. Great viewing sight. Nothing! Enjoyed your success there.

Thanks! I really enjoyed my stay at the Izaak. I stayed in the Locomotive for one night. I uploaded all the trains that I saw there. You can find those videos on my Youtube channel. I even saw a BNSF Executive train!

We watched the Amtrak evening West Bound arrive at Glacier Park Station. We thought it would be great fun to stay in the "engine" at Isaak Walton. How was the reality?

HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO MY LAYOUT!

Maxrailroad ·
Hello all! Two years ago today, a bunch of 2" X 4"s, 4" by 4"s, and some plywood were nailed together and have made the thing that gives me the most joy in life. So much has happened since May 28th, 2015 and to celebrate the changes, I am doing a special livestream on my youtube channel tonight! Tune in at 9:30 on the link to see the layout in action, Live!

Best Birthday Ever!

M. Mitchell Marmel ·
Yesterday was my birthday. It was also the monthly meeting of the Sugar Creek Model Railroad Club. And someone donated what could be called a metric (poop)load of postwar and prewar Lionels in, well, let's be charitable and say 'well loved' condition. After a bit of haggling (and a modest donation to the club), the Razorback Traction Company's Home For Wayward Lionels has added this: After a bit of cleaning and tweaking, this 2032 consist was growling pleasantly along my layout last night:...

The 1215's 100th Birthday

RDGCO.Productions ·
August, 1918, The creation of the P&R's 0-6-0T, (later RDGCo. 1215) has been completed. This locomotive was "was the last steam locomotive in ICC service on a Class I railroad before being retired in February, 1964". So, in august, the locomotive will be turning 100 years of age, being one of the oldest RDG engines around. After the loco served its final years on the RDG it was sold to Rail Tours INC and was used for two years until the company set there eyes on the GM&O Pacific now...

From one December kid to another, happy birthday, Jeff. I think I spotted a square inch or two of undeveloped real estate on your layout--perhaps if you squeezed in another accessory or two, it wouldn't look so sparse! Nice layout and, like others have noted, beautiful tinplate! I don't have any myself--perhaps next year...? Regards,

Not sure what the "1215" is, but two very nice photos of Reading #1251.

Well, if I am correct when it says that it means for Railroads of the east, railroading in the west certainly used steam for much longer.

Being a "shop goat", I wonder how much "regular service" it saw in the final years. I doubt any of it was revenue service. And while it may industrial and not Class 1, Northwestern Steel and Wire used ex-GTW 0-8-0's until 1980. Rusty

Yes, and some short and industrial park lines used fireless cooker engines until the early nineties, however the locomotive saw Service as a mule/goat until '64 when it was sold to RailTours, who then sold it to a private owner after they acquired the 425.

Although maybe not "Class 1" railroads, both the Buffalo Creek & Gauley (100% steam) and the Kentucky & Tennessee railroads (eastern railroads too, I should add) used steam past 1964, in their main line coal hauling service.

Yes, I'm aware of that since if they hadn't sued steam past 1964, NS Steam excursions wouldn't exist today. If any of you actually read the post, it's using the term in a quote in which I had used the source shown to get that knowledge.

Cool. Happy birthday. A stock car without a hole in the roof. Now you have a car to put the pigmy giraffes in , since their small enough not to need a hole in the roof.

If that 1033 works, any interest in a swap? I have one that needs a little work, want to replace it with another 1033 as it was my great uncle's set transformer.

(cleans the case and the direction/whistle contacts) Cord still flexible, original Lionel plug, doesn't explode when plugged in, 15.5 peak volts, 21.5 with the whistle on but doesn't fully activate either of two whistle tenders I tried. I figure a new rectifier disc will get it back up to factory specs. Still interested? Mitch
