I just received a message from a photographer who had a photo taken from his site and posted in this thread. Are you guys keeping in mind photographers' copyrights? Giving credit to TrainWeb doesn't cut it. TrainWeb didn't take any of these pictures.

Just something to keep in mind.

G'day Captain Tom!

Mea culpa - it was me - it was my photo that caused the "flap." I received an e-mail from "Bergie" telling me which photo it was. Very sorry and will absolutely use much more care in the future. Sent an e-mail to the "offended party," with a copy to "Bergie."

Until the next time! Thumbs Up [tup]

G'day!

For: James  . . . .

Enjoyed your Pix . . . whether freight or passenger, we appreciate 'em all! Thumbs Up [tup]

The cyber bar 'n grill known as "Our" Place on this same Classic Trains, General Discussion Forum may be accessed the same way you entered this one. My advice is to take a look at the first few pages, then the last few - that way you will ascertain what the 'flow' is all about and how we go about our activities.

You will find that the same people who frequent this Thread on a regular basis are the "regulars" at the bar - so if you enjoy it here, you will most definitely find a "welcome mat" out for you there. No need to have any trepidation about visiting - c'mon over - we'd love to have you!

Thanx for asking!

G’day All!

Here's something from PAGE ONE of this Thread . . . . time to begin taking a look at what's been Posted along the right-of-way . . . 

PASSENGER TRAIN NOSTALGIA #1

Here’s something to ponder with regard to our appreciation and fascination with
Classic Trains. Check this out …….

Many of the passenger railroads we’ve heard of and perhaps traveled aboard, had their start up in the 1800’s and early 1900’s. Check out these names of perhaps the best known:

Atlantic Coast Line (1900)
Baltimore & Ohio (1827) #1
Boston & Maine (1835)
Canadian Pacific (1881)
Chesapeake & Ohio (1867)
Chicago & Northwestern (1859)
Chicago, Burlington & Quincy (1855)
Chicago, Milwaukee & St. Paul (“The Milwaukee Road,” 1874)
Chicago, Rock Island & Pacific (1866)
Erie (1859)
Great Northern (1889)
Illinois Central (1851)
Kansas City Southern (1900)
Lehigh Valley (1855)
Louisville & Nashville (1850)
Missouri Pacific (1879)
New York Central (1914, although the formal adoption of that name came later)
New York, Chicago & St. Louis (“Nickel Plate Road,” 1881)
Norfolk & Western (1881)
Northern Pacific (1864)
Pennsylvania Railroad (1846)
Seaboard Air Line (1900)
Southern Pacific (1884)
Southern Railway (1887)

Good Morning Captain Tom!

Sorry for the brief absence, but one must do what one must do!

A word for James: By all means join us over at the bar. You will find the interaction much more frequent than here and as Tom has mentioned, you will be amongst those who have something in common to share.
It is indeed a fun place - take it from me - I had no background whatsoever in the subject of railroading until stumbling onto and into Tom's great cyber bar & grill. Just follow the advice given and you will find it worth the while.

PASSENGER TRAIN NOSTALGIA #2


Here’s a little something taken from the literature associated with the California-Zephyr and its Vista-Dome sleeper observation-lounge:

Rest and Relaxation in the ”Vista-Dome” Lounge-Observation Car

The spacious and luxurious lounge-observation car at the rear of the train and immediately behind the sleeping cars, furnishes congenial lounging facilities on three different levels for as many as fifty passengers.

Modern ingenious designing and expert fabrication combine to make a composite unit of four distinctly separate accommodations in this exquisite car.

The ‘main floor” lounge is located within the gracefully rounded end of the observation car. Here, deeply-cushioned occasionally chairs and settees, in shades of sandalwood and brown in a setting of rose-tan and petal beige, invite complete relaxation.

Carpeted and individually-lighted steps from the lounge lead to the distinctive air-conditioned “Vista-Dome – tastefully decorated in tones of sandalwood. Here, enclosed in shatter-proof, glare-resistant glass, are twenty-four deep-cushioned seats, where passengers may ride in comfort and enjoy a complete view in every direction.

Nestled beneath the Dome is a buffet. Tastefully decorated in rose and gray-green, it provides a delightful rendezvous in which to speed the miles and minutes. At one end of the buffet is a refreshment counter with carved linoleum base and back bar of stainless steel and etched mirrors. Electric refrigeration units assure an ample supply of cool, refreshing beverages at all times. The buffet has a telephone connection with the dining car, over which table reservations can be made.

Forward from the buffet are three bedrooms and a drawing room, each having enclosed toilet facilities. Each room is attractively decorated in harmonious shades of rose-tan, petal beige, taupe and ashes of roses.

This car is completely carpeted and windows are equipped with Venetian blinds – those in the observation-lounge having drapes of gold and white.

From the “American Passenger Train”

Of note: The design of these Budd manufactured cars carries over to day with the VIA Rail Canada fleet of Park Car observation domes. With slight modifications, the literature quoted above could be closely associated with the cars still in use in Canada.

Enjoy!

G'day Captain Tom!

Not much to offer today - but I did check through many of the early pages and there's so much worthwhile material that is indeed one hefty archive of "classic trains" material. Much of it came from you and so much appears to be just at "idle" here in the ether.

Check out this URL for indepth information on the CPs history and so forth . . .

Canadian Pacific … by land … across Canada

Now see Canadian Pacific’s spectacular Banff-Lake Louise Route
From the Scenic Domes of the “The Canadian”


Mile-high in the Canadian Rockies, Banff Springs is famous the world over for its scenic surroundings, complete outdoor recreation facilities. Both Banff and nearby Lake Louise are on the route of “The Canadian.”

Treat yourself to the world’s longest, most spectacular Scenic Dome ride as “The Canadian” winds through the Canadian Rockies on its transcontinental route. From high in the Scenic Domes of Canda’s only stainless-steel Scenic Dome streamliner you’ll thrill to the breath-taking view of Canada’s unspoiled natural beauty. And aboard “The Canadian” you’ll find the accommodations superb, the service unexcelled. You may travel tourist or first class – coach seats reserved at no extra fare.

See your travel agent for information about “The Canadian” – in daily service throughout the year between Montreal or Toronto, and Vancouver.

Good Afternoon Captain Tom!

I have always enjoyed that particular nostalgia piece of yours of the hotels and boarding houses in the Blue Ridge mountains. Some of the finest places to stay, and some of the worst, could and can be found in many hideaway locations throughout the world.

Nevertheless, it is time for my contribution to this thread . . . .

PASSENGER TRAIN NOSTALGIA #8

Here’s something to ponder with regard to our appreciation and fascination with
Classic Trains. Check this advertisement out (from The Official Guide of the Railways – 1956)


Great Northern(GN)

Great Way To CALIFORNIA via the Pacific Northwest

Chicago-Minneapolis-St. Paul-Spokane-Seattle & Portland-San Francisco-Los Angeles

TOWERING PEAKS
in Glacier National Park in the Montana Rockies.

LOFTY MT. RAINIER looks over Seattle and Tacoma.

GOLDEN GATE BRIDGE
is only one of the fascinating sights awaiting travelers in San Francisco.

Rail Fare to San Francisco is no more on Great Northern’s incomparable Great Dome EMPIRE BUILDER

To delight travel-experienced patrons who are planning a fall trip to California, suggest that they route themselves via the Pacific Northwest.

Great Northern’s EMPIRE BUILDER, now with Great Domes for both coach and Pullman passengers, takes the northern route across the nation - - more than two thousand miles of truly superb scenery.

Your patrons will thank you for sending them on a route where they can see the Mississippi River Palisades, Glacier National Park, the Rocky Mountains of Montana and Idaho. the Cascades of Washington and Oregon.

Connections with fine trains to and from California in Seattle or Portland. Rail fare from Chicago to San Francisco is no more via Great Northern.
