Some dome action on the Arkansas & Missouri. They've acquired "Silver Feather", originally on the 1948 California Zephyr.

After some of the great photos from others, I can see just how lousy my point and shoot is. From earlier this year.

The Knox & Kane locomotive was damaged in an engine house fire some time ago. After languishing for a few years, it was purchased by the Connecticut Valley Railway and restored under the supervision of J. David Conrad, the man who master-minded the original importation of the new Chinese locomotives. So now, after selling their original SY, the Connecticut Valley has an operating SY again.

It was re-lettered and slightly cosmetically altered to resemble a New Haven Railway locomotive:

As some of you may know, Colorado had major flooding in the past couple weeks. Here is a link to some photos showing damage on Union Pacific's Moffat Subdivision between Denver and the Moffat Tunnel.

I wonder how long that will take to repair. I'm guessing they'll just build a bridge over the gap, but still that would require a lot of stabilizing on those now exposed face (at least that's what I'm thinking). Plus we've got winter coming along which would slow the effort.

Damn I thought that was a rope bridge in some jungle. Took me a minute to process what I was looking at.

Crazy, huh? I heard that it had a trestle but had been filled in and the creek runs through a culvert. Or did...
