    Yeah, and they even gave all of the different classes of "goods wagons" special nicknames, usually fish or some other aquatic critter.

    I had to go by the tube station next to "my" square to catch the underground in London. I felt special. ;)

    Hmm, must have been a railroad here once. Artifacts in the pavement.

    A random morsel from that stack of prints I bought back in March. This one is a trio of C&NW Dash 8s running light in some unknown location in the early 90s.

    There used to be some in Fairhaven, WA. (Which some call "South Bellingham". It may actually be part of Bellingham these days?) I believe those were from a long, long abandoned interurban operation.

    The old Bellingham Bay & British Columbia Railway had a line thru the center of town, which in turn became the Milwaukee Road when they bought them out. I wanna say the old depot is on a main streeet thru town, and is now a pizza place. Could be the old BB&BC tracks?

    No. This is well south of the MILW/BB&BC/B&N area. Not sure if you ever explored the MILW in Bellingham? This is (was?) in Fairhaven. It has been a long time since I was last there. Noted these one time, when chasing trains with Al Currier, post-MILW.

    It got lost in Georgia, and the heavy rain there cleaned it up!

    It was probably still fairly new at the time. LOL

    Lost it was and I wish that the rain would do the same to my truck. :D

    Those CSX units look tough but what's with the scheme with the "CSX" in parentheses?

    :D

    That's the Boxcar logo that has been out for several years now. I think it looks great on some equipment but to me, it just doesn't fit on the locomotives. :cautious:

    It also has wheels under it Doug. Simple and pretty clever I think.
