You'll have to excuse me.....I was merely pointing out an answer to your comment of why diesels dropped streamlining, for the folks here who don't have your obvious superior knowledge of trains.....

Cheers!

Your snide comments aren't unnoticed. You just like to condescend people by asserting your opinion as a factual "correction". Just another sad old man trying to stay relevant!

We're only 2 days since Christmas. Control your testosterone.

Gee whiz, don't turn a friendly post into a battlefield.

I think you have the wrong thread. I am neither a child nor misbehaving. Nor do I believe testosterone has anything to do with it.

You do realize your signature quotes a Canadian chastising Americans as not being worthy of their country. Very poor taste!

Talk about poor taste.....I mean, look at you, getting all bent out of shape because I was merely giving some friendly info about trains.....and nothing I stated was inaccurate......

Here is my American Flyer S scale Royal Blue. I never saw a pic
of the real thing. Cool thread. My model is a good reproduction
of the P7a. Notice the circles around the nose. My loco was made
in 1948.

Beautiful loco. One of my favorites. I like the unstreamlined version better.
From what I always heard, streamlining did nothing for increasing performance of the locomotive. It was strictly for that look of speed. It was part of the Art-Deco era of design.

You're the one that makes the snarky comments. I've read enough of your posts to know it is repeat behavior from you. Try taking your own suggestions, I wasn't talking to you anyway.

Have you read your own signature line!
