    I wasn't positive but now this film confirms it, I rode behind some of them while still in service on NJ Transit.

    It was watching Trains that finally Convinced me..

    Diesel is just Generator,,all Motive Power is electric.

    a more efficient Generator/Electrical system would not be a bad thing.

    Liberty is lost through complacency and a subservient mindset. When we accept or even welcome automobile checkpoints, random searches, mandatory identification cards, and paramilitary police in our streets, we have lost a vital part of our American heritage. America was born of protest, revolution, and mistrust of government. Subservient societies neither maintain nor deserve freedom for long.

    A clear case of Liberty preserving authoritarianism.

    This one slipped right past me.

    Reading "Northern" #2102 was restored to full service this year.

    You can see why the "Road of Anthracite" kept Phoebe's gowns so white.

    Michael Palin of "Monty Python" fame is by far and away one of my favorite travel show hosts.

    Here's an early 1980 show of his on trains.

    Missed this one, just watched it.

    What in the $#@! did we do wrong?

    (yes, I know...rhetorical...the answers are numerous and we know them all.)

    They got the date wrong as well...this is around 1950 to 1955 I'd say.

    Damn...what the hell are we doing wrong.

    The Soviets ran better trains than Anthrax.

    I must confess, there's one thing communism is good for. It can't move past obsolete technology until it has had plenty of time to come back in style.

    The Green Marxists keep pushing things, we may end up right back using these.

    I hope Jay recovers fully, he is doing great work keeping all this stuff operating and preserved.
