Multiple pix plus video acceptable, too? Some with Boxpok wheels and coal tender like the model.

its a DA 800 with sound and you get a bonus loco as well 3026 with sound and for our SNCF enthusiasts I've thrown in a 231 from ETAT (3317), this was the first time (!!!!) Märklin ever, ever produced a loco and carriages together (baggage car, 1st and 2nd class carriage (1981)

Hi Ak,
I have invited Gusaya45 by PM, to ask to see a picture - so he may jump in at some time.
I have also suggested that he post more of his pictures under "me and my layout ...".
It appears they might be worth seeing.

What a classic. Those E91s push my buttons.
I think E91 99 is preserved in a German museum.

No way, I am impressed ! Got to be yellow, right ?

What do you desire to see ?



P.S.: You realize that you are venturing into the dreaded AMTRAK era, don't you?
;o)

"While in Amtrak service two of the 300 class F7A's (304L and 315L) and one F7B were repainted into the yellow warbonnet paint scheme, but Amtrak apparently did not like the yellow scheme and no further units were repainted while Amtrak was using the 300 class units."

Caption: “ATSF F7A 315 leads Amtrak #16, the Texas Chief, at Streator, Illinois, April 22, 1973. The 315 was one of a handful of Santa Fe F units that received the ‘yellow bonnet’ paint scheme. The train consist includes a baggage car, two hi-level coaches, a lounge, a diner, and two Pullman cars.”

ATSF F7A 304 hauled freight too.

Careful what you wish for. :) However, if not for Amtrak we would have no rail passage at all along many of the great mainlines....

I did not know yellowbonnet was used for freight. Very interesting. In or around 1970 I guess any-bonnett was freight-bonnett!

Lets see....how about a water tower along a main or branch line, but not at a station or yard?

Water tower along a branch or main line?

The caption reads:
"Western Maryland passenger trains stops for water. In the later years of steam power, many freight locomotives replenished their fuel supplies right on the main line and visited division point engine terminals only after extended runs."

Does this qualify then?

Excellent, I had in mind a Western Railroad or two that used this practice, so the surprise all the better. Western Maryland has a historic railroad these days, about 2 hours away from my home :)

So now you must notify us of the Goose intended to be located in frantic pursuit :)

Just needs someone to revive it with a suitable question.

How about a picture of the prototype Br185 in Clariant Livery to revive the thread.

From my searches, it seems a photo of that loco might be as hard to find as rocking-horse dung.

Interesting though.

I'll send a photo with 2 different road numbers on a BR E 194.

Is an MR a 2/3 car diesel multiple unit passenger set?
Why would it be hauling a mail car?

Hi, if you mean why was it hauling a mail car, it was because they were the only regular train going to the more remote areas. The only photo I've ever been able to find is from its last run stopping in Ringkobing, which happens to be my home town. I'm too young to have remember having seen that though, if I did.
