Joe,

This photo shoot might be a little closer to where you are?

Yes, I have been to the California State Railroad Museum, and the setting looked familiar. I think the locomotive was there, but the road colors were different. Maybe it was painted with primer, not sure. I'll have to look through my archives. I do remember you telling us you were in the Air Force. And yes, I did get some good shots of the cab forward!

OT, but you may not have heard. The Oakland A's will make Sacramento their temporary home for a couple years until the new stadium in Las Vegas is completed. They also considered Salt Lake City, but I suppose Sacramento makes more sense. Their stadium lease in Oakland runs out after this season. Salt Lake is working on getting their own MLB franchise.

You take care too down there in the desert! Hope the weather is nice! We've been back and forth to the Mojave this past year many times -- Yucca Valley, close to Joshua Tree National Park. I've posted a bunch of photos from the park, and there are more to come.

Hello Doc
Here's another pic of the same engine (check #) only still in the resto shop.

The Santa Fe Super Chief
Yes, The California State RR Museum, Sacramento.
Back when I lived in San Francisco. Actually lived in Sacramento 15 yrs, was discharged from the Air Force in Sacramento. Very comfortable town to live in back then, was a great place to be a young guy     it's the Capital city of California

But I digress
Don't remember if you had visited the museum, but it does, as one would expect, have a world class collection. Headed by I believe the only famous "Cab Forward" articulated steamer which almost rivals Big Boy in size
Take care Doc___Joe

Hey Joe!

Beautiful F7 Warbonnet photo! is that in Sacramento? Too bad BNSF changed the road colors! I have a Fleischmann HO model Alco PA in Warbonnet colors "made in West Germany"! Always my favorite road colors.

Thanks Paul and Kelly. Kit was A7iv with 24-105 G OSS f4

The following day saw a repeat charter with number 7 and a GWR themed mixed train. Some of the participants were on that too, but one day was enough for me.

Another super set, Alan! I like no.s 4, 6 and 9 the best. Really nice capture of locomotive and crewman coming through that cut! Though they are all very nice indeed! Also thanks for the railway history. As a railfan I always appreciate that. For us gear-heads, what did you capture these photos with?

Regards,

Kelly

Coming out of the gap in 9 is great! Must have been something to see in person!

Photo charter on the Vale of Rheidol Railway.

1. Start of day preparation at Aberystwyth.


2. Number 7 in the shed. The railway was opened in 1902 to facilitate transport of lead and timber and passed into Great Western Railway ownership in 1923. By this time, the freight business wasn't viable but the line continued to serve passengers. The locomotives and carriages currently in use were built for the line by the Great Western Railway between 1923 and 1938, numbers 7, 8 and 9. At Nationalisation, the railway became part of British Railways and survived through threats of closure to become the last steam line owned by British Rail until privatised in 1989.


3. Our charter stopped at several photogenic spots along the line to allow photography.


4.


5.


6.


7.


8.


9.


10. The terminus at Devils Bridge.
