For those who may have seen my open views "Seligman" post, this is the railroad part extension of that trip

I came across a new steam engine that the Grand Canyon RR had put on exhibit in downtown Williams, Arizona. Its one I had never seen before or heard of. Its not 539 I posted in 2018 or Pegelli's great photo here engine # 18.I've checked their website but don't even mention the steam engines, but here it is.

Its a pretty impressive engine but they have its back facing the public🤷‍♂️

Then I got to Kingman Arizona a bigger crossroads city
and they had a Locomotive Park in the downtown, w 1 locomotive in an open park. A pretty historic engine. A 484 "Northern" The Last steam engine to travel to Kingman
It ran the Railway Club of Southern California's "Farewell to Steam " special excursion run and then was donated to Kingman by the Santa Fe RR

Its in the middle of a small park where one can climb on it and it looks un vandalized or amazingly graffitied

I took some liberties w pp

I think you did well to get a picture and post. I wouldn't dream of using my phone, and if I did I doubt I could get a good enough picture worth posting!

I was on holiday in Dorset last week and didn't realise that the Swanage Railway had re-opened under the easing of lockdown regulations. I was in a stationary traffic queue outside Corfe Castle returning from Studland when I heard a steam whistle. So with nothing planned and thinking of this thread, I snatched a picture with the selfie camera of my Smartphone.

The locomotive is an unrebuilt SR 4-6-2 "Battle of Britain" Class No. 34072 257 Squadron.

Next time I promise to do better, and with Dyxum-approved gear!



Howard, what happened to the front of the locomotive? It kinda looks odd?

Ian

46100 Royal Scot passes through Earlestown with a train for York on 22nd August 2020. In 1933, 6152 'The King's Dragoon Guardsman' and 6100 swapped identities permanently. 6152 had been built at Derby Works in 1930. The "new" Royal Scot was sent to the Century of Progress Exposition of 1933 and toured Canada and the United States with a train of typical LMS carriages. When the LMS became british railways in 1948 it was renumbered as 46100. It was rebuilt in 1950 with a new boiler. It carries a commemorative plate under the nameplate.

That sounds a bit like what I did for my daughter's sports career, although my car isn't purple

Your right Fred, my thing, wasn't easy, lived downtown San Francisco for the last decade for daughter

If you want to see long trains, like you can't see the beginning and can't see the end. Just come out here when things get right

I would love that Joseph, if it ever happens we need to make sure 4014 is running, I think I've watched at least half the youtubes of it but nothing beats real life
You can see the April Foolishness 2022 exhibition here Another great show of the talent we have on Dyxum

Do I presume right that those BNSF locomotives have buzzard nickname?

PS. And for the sake of variety, please try to find also another sky image, the one you used to replace the sky in these pictures looks nice, but it is bit odd to see the same clouds in the same positions in every picture...

When I go out on a trip, I don't usually make plans, just go, do what I want, and see what happens

To my great delight, this happened:
It was a difficult but happy shoot, the blazing sun was on the otherside and back to the engines

a little playing around w my editor
photos never seem as good going thru flickr as they are on my Mac 🤷‍♂️
sorry


Congratulations on 2000 posts. As a newbie that seems a long way off for me. Many of my railway pictures have suffered from the sun being in the wrong place. Nevertheless your pictures have turned out really well. I'd love to witness some of the huge freight trains you get to see.
