    I stumbled upon a website that has a nice photo archive of trains, nicely categorized by country, region, state and city even. This is the link: http://www.rrpicturearchives.net/default.aspx
    but it's not why I'm posting.
    I found some shots of Steamtown which reminded me of when I was a kid, specifically October 23, 1983 when steam town had their last excursion in VT. I never got any pics of that last trip steamtown made. I remember there were 3 Alco RS-11's? and a steamer 4-8-2 I think. Anyway, just wondering if anyone knows where to find pics or that specific trip.

    -thanks

    Hi Charles, welcome to the train Board, we're glad to have you on board.

    Not specifically what you are looking for, but somewhere I have photos of when my sons and I visited Bellows Falls Steamtown in summer '71, and rode behind an RS-1. I'll try to locate and post them tomorrow or Monday, just for the memories.

    I have a few photos in one of my albums taken in about 1965.

    Welcome to Trainboard, Charles. I did a Google search for "steamtown bellows falls vermont" and found a lot of interesting information, none of which answers your specific question, but worthwhile stuff. :tb-biggrin:
