    Railroad snow fighters use Jordan Spreaders to clean up the right of way along California's Donner Pass in the Sierra Nevada mountains. I really like some of these drone videos. HD best viewed full screen.

    These are pics taken by my old friend Charlie and I when he flew out to Canon City, CO from Chicago, and we drove down to take the Cumbres & Toltec Scenic RR trip. First one, me standing by one of the old locomotives they still used; this was in 1977, thus the poor quality.

    This one is a rotary snow plow used extensively back in the day, as the route wound through very high mountains, Charlie posing happily by it.

    My hubby and I love trains. While dating we would take short day trips and search out old RR cars and engines. Then we bought a Lionel train set
    it was cheap back then- and set up a huge oval track that we added buildings to and all the things in order to make it look and feel like a town .
    We named it Mitchellville ;). I love d that thing, but had to let it go, when we had moved years ago, was no room for it.

    Just a reminder that this isn't really a train thread.

    The last video reminded me a little of extreme ironing (not on a train).

    Replica of an 1829 Stephenson's Rocket steam engine, built for the 1923 film "Our Hospitality."
