Porter Air Locomotive

A bit different for you industrial loco fans. Had saw a listing for this in Hayden, AZ about 50 miles south of me. So a bit of cabin fever today and with nice weather this morning decided to run down there and check it out. Kept my social isolation since on most of this highway to there, except in an occasional passing vehicle, you're 30 miles from another person.

A neat locomotive. The Railroad Museum of Pennsylvania has what I think is a similar Heisler-built fireless locomotive on display: https://rrmuseumpa.org/wp-content/up...Fireless-D.jpg

Dug up some more old photos from September 2009 outside Cresson, TX. Some units from the Fort Worth and Western Railway. Great livery on these.

Another old shot I scanned early New Year's morning in the small switching area in Anaheim. SP EMD SW1500.

An interesting announcement from the C&O Historical Society:



Historic Diesel Locomotive Donated and Restored by CSX Arrives at
C&O Railway Heritage Center for Public Display


Clifton Forge, Va. – Completing a journey for a famous locomotive that started its life as one of the modern Chesapeake & Ohio Railway’s workhorses, became a darling of railfans as the last CSX Transportation locomotive still wearing an original C&O Railway paint scheme, and was then donated and restored by CSX to the C&O Historical Society, the C&O SD40 diesel locomotive #7534 is now on display at the non-profit organization’s C&O Railway Heritage Center museum in Clifton Forge, Virginia.

That is the only image in the May issue of the C&O Historical Society newsletter, and the loco has just arrived. Probably a lot more as time goes by. Check C&O Historical Society images on Google.

As an aside, I grew up in Mt. Hope, WVa, near Beckley. Coal mines, tipples, 2-6-6-4's, hoppers, ash and company stores everywhere! Glorious! (looking back, not then)! Few diesels then.The last steam on the C&O was, I believe, in 1953, the year I graduated from HS, and went out into the world. Needless to say, my model railroad interests are that era. I have many N gauge C&O steam locos, about 150 cars, mostly coal hoppers - now if I could just get that layout that I have been planning for, hmmm.... 65 years, built! I have built a few N gauge paper model buildings, and think they turn out quite nice.

That image in previous post was supposed to be deleted before posting, but somehow managed to stay! It is from TRAINS website, and supposedly is the SD40 headed to shops for restoration. The numbers do not match however, so I didn't want to include it. But, the computer is smarter than me (or, maybe, dumber ).

Cool M&B rail Blountstown Florida

OK, I do have a soft spot for trains even though I never built a model of one ( I did have multiple HO gage train sets and my own layout in the basement years ago ).

So when I see trains, I do stop to admire and take pics.


Here is a 444 old timer train taken in the Florida Panhandle M&B museum on my way to Pensacola. ( Jim , it's 2 hours from Destin ).
