Love it Fife!  VERY impressive!

And here's something that found ME.  Three-and-a-half minutes of nothing we don't already know, but broadcast quality and fun to watch!

That's the style,  Dougnotta.  Run that B&O Geep long-hood forward, but tell the engineer to turn around.  Our host railroad, the South Branch Valley, still paints their engines in that B&O scheme, and it's always cool passing them along the way.

Fife, He be facing the right way. They were still running long hood forward when I was a fireman for the Best & Only in the mid 60's until my jeans & plaids were traded in for blues and fatigues.

Thankfully no !

Unfortunately the division I worked for was essentially the bastard stepchild, seemed like every engine we had on our roster were crap that the other divisions were dumping for new modern stuff. I think the covered wagons, F series, on the unscheduled road trips were abolutely the worst.
