Quote from: RhB_HJ on June 22, 2013, 05:45:18 PMMust read if you're interested in the 1950s transition period: Classic Trains Special2013 - Trains of the 1950s. Very interesting stuff for all those who missed out because they were too young or didn't live in NA. I sure would have liked to go cross-country on the Empire Builder.

Quote from: Jeff on July 17, 2013, 05:53:24 PMThe last time I saw the Flying Scotsman t looked like an immense pile of human bodies with a spec of light green paint showing through here and there. Or so it seemed at the time :-) . The annoying part was not being able to get any pictures of the entire engine. <snip>
