Some great pics of some great looking passenger trains. Some day I hope to get to Steam Town. We have a great train museum here near st louis. Many one of a kind
train equipment. Frisco 1522 used to run out of the museum but it has been silenced. Many
of the pieces are covered by a roof. It helps. We have a big boy that you can enter the cab. Worth a stop if you are in the st louis area.

As a boy, way back in the late 40's and early 50's, I rode the train pulled by a steamer, from Belleville IL to St Louis. Wish that I could go back in time and relive those trips. That was also the days when the Admiral plied the Mississippi as a brand new excursion boat.

I visited the St. Louis museum several decades ago and they do have a fine collection. The photos are in one of the little yellow boxes in one of the dozen or so shoe boxes that hold most of my slide collection. That's one of my retirement projects - scan the good slides for ease of access. Now I just need to get retired.

Black River and Western switches some freight at Flemington, NJ in the summer of 1989. No. 60 came from the Great Western Railway, and was a sister to Strasburg's No. 90.

The SP ran out the last miles of their FM Trainmasters in commuter service on the San Francisco penninsula in the early 1970's. IIRC, this is San Mateo in 1972.
