These are the types of trains I grew up with.

When we were little, we would always play in the railroad yards until they chased us out:

  1. What a great video. I really liked the steam locomotive helping the diesel up the grade. Heh heh
    Horseshoe Curve is famous and it is great to see it with steam. Found a video about the Curve here:

  2. The footage of the heavy freights slogging up the grade makes you realize just how much weight was being moved.
    The PA railroad seems to have some gigantic tenders!
    I wondered about the structure on some of the tenders and after some Google research, I found they were called doghouse tenders.
    Here is a link to some information.
    Thanks for the film!
