Hi SD70

Ok, I see by your participant's name you might feel differently - but my blood runs cold in view of a beaten diesel, sorry, man.

My name comes from the stuff I get to run at work.  Unfortunately Canadian National no longer rosters any steam power, and hasn't hosted any real steam excursions for the last 20 years. 

What I'd give for a head full of cinders, you must have had a blast!

Greetings from Alberta

Juniatha,

Yes I know. I can't put it up. Either I'm not knowing how to do it or the site does not make it.

I try here again (???)

 

No, nothing (and this was a test for me to get it correct!)

Oh, I just discovered this:

>>To me, this is what Allison Moyet sings about (and wasn't she a formidable 44 at that time?) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HG5zDk82Wd0
All cried out<<

This is nice story, very nice.

I have also thought about something like this ...

Thank you for putting it up!

Sara, the pictures need their own URL for the forum software to display them.

The easiest way is to join one of the free image-hosting sites like Flickr and upload what you want to post there.  This will give you a direct URL which you can then make 'clickable' in a post by using the little 'insert link' button above the post window (it looks like two little chain links).

Many of the sites feature 'tools' that facilitate photo sharing, including the ability to 'embed'.  These can be used to show photos directly without triggering the 'hot linking protection' Kalmbach uses -- you paste the 'embed' link or BBcode directly into your post without using the Kalmbach link or image insert tools.

Ask again if you continue to have problems; we have some experts to assist you in detail.

this is the same as in my post, only you have it clickable and in mine you have to copy and paste it.

Ah, there we are, back to smoke deflectors!

Now, on that locomotiv  they look like they belong there, in fact, the locomotive wouldn't look quite the same without them.  

So it all depends, doesn't it?  Wink

The secret is: the smoke wings take up and repeat the canted windows area of the cab, so the engine has it not just in the back but up front, too. Also, the wings are essential when seeing the locomotive more from the front when the wings repeat the canted outer area of the cylinders and reverse it.

Aw, dammit, I got a YouTube message "The Uploader Has Not Made This Video Available In Your Country."

First time I've ever seen that!  I've seen YouTube vids from all over up to now.

No sound in version #2 in my part of the United States at least.

So here's something that works

You can't have too much Alison. 

Invisible is 12:11.

Her voice is great, the song is great. She complains about her 'not-so' friend or lover, but can't break away. That's the old story - she's true, the other is not. That's the way it is - why? I don't know, I read it in the cristal so often, and the proband visiting me doesn't believe me but the one he or she asks me about. So, then I cannot do anything, I have to let them run into their doom. That's hard and everytime it happens I think about no more continuing with it. But I can't really because the reading wouldn't stop. Then again sometimes it happens a proband listens and is prepared and it makes me feel good again. It happens, however I see someone in the suburban railcars or in the underground train, and often it is no fun to get the story, I tell you! I leave the car, I have to. Luckly, over here I can do a lot by bike in the warm months and even in the no-so-warm times.
