Too bad trains are seldom the fastest route these days!

What do these people have in common? Walt Disney, Walter Knott, Tony Baxter, Tom Scherman, Ward Kimball, Roger Broggie, Salvador Dali, Ollie Johnston, John Lasseter, Nate Lord, Harper Goff, Frank Sinatra, Rod Stewart, Johnny Cash, Pete Waterman, Roger Daltrey, Donald Sutherland, and many others in Hollywood have in common? They were all model railroad and/or live steam enthusiasts!

Re: Trains of Steam

I hope you don't mind I've merged this with an existing topic on trains? It's a good way to revive that one and there are lots of pictures in these pages that people might want to take another look at.

My own preference is more for diesel-era trains. I like the streamline design of the 30s, but then again there's no steampunk without steam!

Re: Trains of Steam

Thank you, Nick. I forgot about this thread. Some wonderful stuff here! I like the Diesel-era streamliners too. But my favorites are the 1860's Mogul and American. https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid … mp;theater

Railway in the sky. The wonderful project of Thadeus Lowe. I hiked up to the top of Echo Mt. back during the early 1990's and saw the old ruins. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yc_lqdHyNNs

Most Los Angeles tourists think of Disneyland when looking for entertainment. However, there are thousands of little Disneylands all over. Many of them are very inexpensive or free! Here is a video by the late Huell Howser at the Los Angeles County fairground: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zeoW6DfyXpY
