Last weekend I went up to Portland and took a train ride with my youngest grandson. The night before we went down and checked it out in the dark. The 4449 Locomotive is 475,000 lbs. of Mighty Steel. It was a blast. :D:D:D

And if you are into a top notch Youtube video of this wonderful machine, here it is! :D:D:D

Here's a quicky vid of an old fat hobbit that can't get enough of the 4449 :D:D:D

Takes a couple minutes to load...16 megs (sorry)

Where I grew up, I was only a few miles from the old Balwdin Locomotive Works in Eddystone / Philadelphia.
I love trains.

Nice.

This year's train trip was a blast as usual. Great fun, kids a year older (me, too). Pictures not as good this year. I tried to use night settings, boo. Anyway, had a wonderful time. The 4449 is truly a sight to behold. She has a new home now The Oregon Rail Heritage Center
