Daily Deviation

Given 2013-04-30
Dixie is not only well saturated in colour and contrast, but also well framed in its balanced composition. ~MidEngine4Life photographs the train in all its glorious splendour and vibrant history. It is interesting to see a model such as this from the front with the smoke adding more to the profundity of this piece. ( Featured by 3wyl )

That's quite an interesting engine. On most steam engines the boiler is normally in the centre :)

Great picture, the red grabs me! What a unique train... I am not an expert on trains but really dig the offset design so the operator can see!

This is a "Shay" type geared locomotive. It has large pistons along the right side that work much the engine in your car does.

I thought this looked familiar! I moved from Felton to Ben Lomond a few months ago, but you can still hear the train whistles from Roaring Camp.

I always loved the design of the Climax-A though I think it would have been improved with a three cylinder (balenced) engine. The Shay had a problem staying on the tracks due to the drive shafts binding on curves.

I'm curious as to which line is involved. As a long time rail fan, I thought I was familiar with most North American steam, but now I am not so sure. Well done at any rate.

This is Roaring Camp & Big Trees, a narrow gauge line that runs a short round trip to the summit of a nearby mountain in Felton, California. They also operate a standard gauge diesel train to the Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk along an old line dating from 1875.

Okay, I must have missed the listings in Trains Annual Guides. We may be seeing some mainline steam in a couple of weeks. I live just south of the NS, ex-Nickle Plate, mainline from Cleveland, Ohio, to Buffalo, NY, and may go the NS steam trip on the west side of Cleveland. I may have a couple of steam shots from the AC&J here locally.

If your ever in the Bay Area, this, the Roaring Camp & Big Trees Railroad and the Niles Canyon Railway are the two to visit. See my other work

Steamtrains are great! On german TV there was for over twenty years a weekly Series called "Railway Romanctic". There were a lot of reports from Railways from all over the world and from Steam or other classic events in Germany and Europe. Pity that its not airing anymore.

Falsch. Eisenbahn-Romantik wird noch immer produziert und läuft auch regelmäßig.

impressive old girl. there are not many old.....i am presuming a Shay since i cannot see the gear...... operational or preserved in the world. Here in Australia there is a 2ft gauge two truck at the Ipswich railway Workshops for restoration to static, there is one down at the Puffing Billy Railway in a static condition, plus they have a Climax that they are restoring.
