This one was mighty cool too... more mechanical with a hint of romantic nostalgia...

That didn't pull up a train Moon pulled up about what men thought in 1950.

I really enjoyed both clips. Thank you Moon.
If you were paying attention when the 611 started off you will notice there wasn't any wheel slip. The engineer has to have been an old steam man to have started that heavy train which is on a small grade at that location without having the wheels start to slip.
The 611 has just finished a run on the Strasbourg Railroad in Pennsylvania. She enjoyed much love from the crowds despite the restrictions due to the current illness going around. She was there for several months, running almost daily with 2 to 3 runs a day.

I was actually debating on sharing the 1950s guy on a separate thread (hence it being copied on my clipboard) and forgot...

I'm glad you enjoyed it, I figured you might.
