And my fave... the highest street car line in the world.




st train crossing CPR High Level Brigde at Edmonton. Construction of the Edmonton High Level Bridge commenced in 1910, with the final girder in place in 1913. The train shown crossing the bridge is drawn after a photo by Ernest Brown titiled “First train to cross the CPR High Level Bridge at Edmonton,” probably taken in June of 1913. The deck at the top of the structure carried three tracks; the centre for trains, the two outside for electric streetcars. The road deck was located twenty feet below, with two sidewalks eight feet wide supported on cantilever brackets.

Just back from Prudhoe Bay, IMO it was really worth the trip, AK is a beautiful place & you need lots of time to take it all in. I'm looking forward to returning & exploring some places i didn't have time to ride.RIP Ron Melton

Here is a scene for any modelers.
I have heard that everything imaginable has been recreated in miniature.
I just didn't think anyone thought of this yet.

Rochfort bridge now has a concrete section due to the highway being twinned under it

When I was a kid,our parents put us on the Amtrak to go to the next stop about sixty miles away.

They raced the train in their Oldsmobile to pick us up and bring us to the grandparent's a little North of there.

It was a great experience.

My uncle was the manager of the Twin Cinema and got us in to see the new release, Silver Streak.

Thrilling movie after my first train ride.
