A lot of towns and cities grew up as a result of the railroad. Even port cities welcome the trains right through town to the docks and waterfront warehouses. When the trains became dwarfed in presence and importance by trucks and automobiles, many of the surface tracks remained in use.

Everything has limits, especially pressure cookers and steam engines.

Pretty weird looking. I wouldn't have expected train guts to look like that.

I don't know if I'd want them to go carefully slow, or get out of here fast.

Let's not forget Casey Jones, probably the most famous train engineer of the era. He died with his hand on the throttle and the whistle in his hand. Famous for his runs in North Mississippi with speeds exceeding 80 mph in 1900 and numerous songs.

***NSFW Language***


Casey Jones was a son-of-a-bitch,
Drove his train into a 30-foot ditch.
Jumped out the window with his dick in his hand,
Said "Look out ladies, I'm a fucking man!"
He lined 50 women up against the wall,
Said "Spread your legs, I'm gonna fuck you all!"
He fucked 48 then his balls turned blue,
And he backed off, jacked off, then fucked the other two.
Casey Jones died and went to hell,
He fucked the Devil, and he fucked him well.
Little demons running up and down the walls,
Screaming "Kill this bastard, before he fucks us all!"


Or, something like that.

Back in post #27 we talked about McKeen light rail locomotives, some with oddball engines.
Well it seems the last one on the face of the earth has been located in Anchorage and shipped to San Diego to be restored. It had it's pointy nose cut off somewhere along the way.

They have a website to beg for donations and publish updates.
They're going to need a lot of it, they ran $2k over on just the shipping charges. I didn't see what the bill was.

Think of all the rubber tires the railroad saves.

I was gonna use this for a post in "Where Is This - For Dummies", but, then, I looked at the engine again.

Is it just me, or, is there something weird going on there?
