Well BK & Lars here's a bit of older "lite" rail in the form of Montreal and Southern Counties cars, which operated in either train or single car service.

MS&C 102 Comming out of it's terminal in Montreal 1956 ( from HCRY collection )

MS&C 103 out in the counties winter of 1949 ( from HCRY collection )

MS&C combine 107 in Montreal 1947 ( from HCRY collection )

MS&C combine 107 as preserved at the HCRY in 2005 ( my photo )

enjoy   Rob

G"day Captain Tom!

Nice shots from BK and Rob Thumbs Up [tup] - I wanted to add some yesterday, but still experiencing lotsa grief getting pix posted. Don't know whether it's a PhotoBucket or Kalmbach induced "thing" - but it's driving me crazier than usual! Smile,Wink, & Grin [swg]

Hope to see this thread maintain the forward momentum and I want to send a THANKS along to BK for resurrecting it. Good show, Mate! Thumbs Up [tup] Thumbs Up [tup] Thumbs Up [tup] Now all we need is Tom and 20 Fingers Al to come along and things will be back in fine form. Of course, the idea is to get some adult customers over at the bar - but ya know, we've had a bit of fun over here too, huh Question [?]

Later!

Ya know Al, the last time I moved, which was just this past June, and I lost track of which boxes I put my railroad books and magazines in .... I bought a bunch more to replace them! I also bought a few model trains on E-Bay, and carefully "seeded" them into the stacks of boxes to be "discovered" later! Make your move work for you too! Wink [;)]

G'Day Captain Tom!

Been experiencing the same-ol, same-ol with the posting of pix. Couldn't get my Sunday AM collage to "work" over at the bar. Just about had it with this stuff - driving me crazier than an ADD bed bug! Smile,Wink, & Grin [swg]

Ok - so, we've now been visited by Barndad Doug (from the bar!) - good show! Thumbs Up [tup] Now for another try at a pix or two . . . wish me luck!

Good Afternoon Captain Tom!

Just left the bar and managed to get a couple of photos posted! Hooray, thanks to your assistance, appears as if the resumption of "pix-posting" has begun. Thumbs Up [tup]

I surely can understand the love of domes from my "bookend" Lars (LoveDomes). After traveling aboard Via Rail's Canadian on our recent round trip to Vancouver, we thoroughly enjoyed the ambiance of the Park Car. Also traveled back when CP Rail (action red) operated the route and the experience was a winner in all respects. My "trip report" is over at the bar on some earlier pages for anyone interested.

Just wanted to add my My 2 cents [2c] to the happenings here and drop off these photos:

A Metrolink tram in the Manchester city centre 2004 (from: www.wikipedia.com)

Nice pix, BK - that light-rail stuff is really good looking equipment! Thumbs Up [tup]

Haven't got a thing to provide today, other than my best wishes!

Good Morning Captain Tom!

Thought I would swing by on the way home from the bar to see what, if anything, is going on over here. Not much!


I have a couple more light-rail photos, then will depart until early next week:

G'day Captain Tom!

You will be missed at this thread, BK, as it appears that only you are providing anything of substance these days. With 20 Fingers Al out of the mix, who knows how long it will take us to kick start this thead into normalcy Question [?] Surely doesn't appear as if the "browsers" are interested in becoming contributors. Thumbs Down [tdn]

I just deposited a bunch of pix over at the bar for our "Theme for the Day!" - check 'em out ....

G'day Captain Tom!

A weekend and all's quiet here on your "other thread." Pehaps once we get "20 Fingers Al" back online, along with BK up there in Alberta, we'll resurrect a shot of life into this site! Yeah!! [yeah] Of course, guys are browsing, but they simply "take" and apparently aren't willing to "give" - such is life in cyber space, huh Question [?]

Ok - 'nuf of my ramblings - since it's been pretty much NYC here and over at the bar, here's some more!

I am new to the classic trains forum. I mean I have not been to this side of the forum before. I was hoping I could join this little talk on classic trains, since, I am a classic train person. I model the Milwaukee road and the Hiawathas. I am just "guessing" that the milwaukee road is a classic railroad.

I would like to start talking about this kind of thing since it fits in with what I am doing.

Here's a quick pic.

 

I thought the erie builts with the Chicago to Seattle Hiawatha seemed perfect for a classical train.

G'day!

James  - Sign - Welcome [#welcome] Aboard! Of course the Milwaukee Road is a "classic" in every sense of the word. We've Posted all kinds of info on that fine railroad on these pages - just do a 'search' or begin checking out the past pages - it's all there for one and all! Thumbs Up [tup]

Don't know if you're interested, but there's a much more interactive Thread (site) on this Forum that you may find interesting - "Our" Place, an adult cyber bar 'n grill where the talk is all about "classic trains" along with some good times thrown in.

Hope to see ya either here, there or both!

Well I'm glad to hear that!! The Milwaukee road is the railroad I have been interested in all my life. My father is a big Northern pacific guy and for some reason I never really went into that railroad even though I like that railroad also!!! The Milwaukee electrics have always interested me and of course the Hiawathas.
