    This Nose Still Bleeds SP

    The nose patch on UP 1386 has fallen off, and the paint on its flanks is faded - just like an SP should be! Without the yellow patches, this lashup would be more reminiscent of SP in the late 80's. Hard to believe it's 2009.

    Shrouded in Steam

    It's about 7:00 am and DRGW 340 is all steamed up and ready to go at Knott's Berry Farm's theme park. The early morning light and clouds of steam make the background convincing enough for one to believe this just might be somewhere on Colorado's narrow gauge system. DRGW 340 is an 1880's vintage...
