Trucks…MACK Trucks!

by Engineman Wook

I know that trucking played Hell with RR revenues as the years went by, but I AM sort of, well, silly on the subject, especially of Mack B-series trucks…!

RR History Links & Patties

by Engineman Preserved Wook

*****

“D&H Steam Locomotives” is simply an index based on classification by wheel-arrangement:

http://orion.math.iastate.edu/jdhsmith/term/slindex.htm

It’s greater value is that it leads to a worldwide steam-locomotive index:

http://orion.math.iastate.edu/jdhsmith/term/slindex.htm

“David Hey’s Collection” is in its own English webmaster’s word, ‘massive’ & all about English [British — ed] steam:

http://www.davidheyscollection.com/

“Doc Brown’s Science” is alright & so is his “Steam Archive”:

http://www.docbrown.info/

&

http://www.docbrown.info/docspics/ArchiveSteam/ArchiveSteam.htm

“The Douglas Self Site” should be of interest to many sorts of engineers…:

http://douglas-self.com/

…and, his “Extreme Steam” is all the more so to me:

http://douglas-self.com/MUSEUM/LOCOLOCO/locoloco.htm

*****

“FRENCH COMPOUND LOCOMOTIVES’ HOMEPAGE” is the English-language version…:

http://thierry.stora.free.fr/english/

“FITZ’S OLD RAILFAN PAGE” has both NYC pictures & much information on present-day steam-enthusiast events:

http://members.pioneer.net/~fitzrr/

*****

“Historic Machinery Services Corporation” is a steam-power & boiler industrial & locomotive restoration operation:

http://www.historicmachineryservices.com/index.html

*****

“The International Steam Pages” are a large (!) trove of information, pictures, specification & events:

http://www.internationalsteam.co.uk/internat.htm

*****

“The Joseph A. Smith Collection” opens on many photo archives & is linked to sites extensively related to railroad history & motive power centering on Troy, NY:

http://www.nyysa.com/code/Collection.php

*****

“Kahndog Publications” offers material especially in connection with the NYC:

http://www.webring.org/l/rd?ring=newyorkcentralra;id=46;url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww%2Ekahndog%2Ecom%2F

Kip Teague’s “Virginia Steam Locomotives” links to information on both Norfolk & Western and Virginia state railroading history, in the home of the great Pocahontas coal-carriers:

http://www.retroweb.com/steamtrains.html

Teague’s “RetroWeb” is where “You’ll find classic television, steam locomotives, moonwalks, lost movie backlot studios and much more here at RetroWeb, Kipp Teague’s web site for the similarly undercultured!”

Some Of My Favorite RR Links Today

by Preserved Wook

*****

This first site focuses “on Locomotives Built, Rebuilt, and Completed at Altoona, PA by the PRR, PC, CR, and NS at the Altoona Machine Shops and Juniata Shops”:

http://www.altoonaworks.info/

alcohistory.blogspot.com is an interesting web log not active since 2010 & that presents American Locomotive Company photos:

http://alcohistory.blogspot.com/

“American Steam Trains in the 1940’s & 1950’s – When Steam was King” features silent footage of lots ultimate North American steam footage & carries the viewer to a YouTube page of related links:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-7-B7j4uB8M&feature=endscreen&NR=1

This francophone site gives a summary of the work of French ace steam locomotive design-engineer André Chapelon (26 October 1892, Saint-Paul-en-Cornillon – 22 July 1978, Paris):

http://www.techno-science.net/?onglet=glossaire&definition=2329

*****

Under B are these two B&O links, on “The Passenger Train – 1940 – Historic Baltimore & Ohio Railroad Trains”:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pV3Ydb1yazg

And, the B&O Railroad Museum:

http://www.borail.org/

Brian Clough’s Susquehanna Valley RR clip-art site is still active, and with many railroad GIFs:

http://www.banksofthesusquehanna.com/

These BBC sites are archives of radio & television program(mes!) about British railways & steam & other English railroading topics:

http://www.bbc.co.uk/archive/steamtrains/

&

http://www.bbc.co.uk/bbcfour/collections/p01277qd/steam-railways

If like myself you are among discriminating D&H railfen, the Bridge Line Historical Society pp will be interesting:

http://www.bridge-line.org/

“British Steam Locomotives from the WD GWR LMS LNER & Southern Railway in Searchable Databases” offers much on the pre-BR steam regions as well as BR Standard-Class motive power, al by topshed, out of — Mairlben…ORSTYLIA:

http://www.britishsteam.com/

*****

“Chicago & North Western Railroad” focuses on C&NW operations out of Ames, IA:

http://www.ameshistoricalsociety.org/exhibits/chicago_nw.htm

Chicago and North Western Railroad “The Song of the Pioneer” is a movie straight out of the oldtime Late Modern Age, and it is an enjoyable example of corporate cinema:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lp-sflgz5Cs

C&O Historical Society’s site is available, here:

http://www.cohs.org/

The Catskill Archive is both interesting in its own right & links with a number of good RR history sites:

http://www.catskillarchive.com/home.htm

As a fan of Mr James Thurber, I am also interested in this Columbus, OH, “Columbus Railroads” site:

http://www.columbusrailroads.com/new/?menu=Home

“Construction et technique de la locomotive à vapeur” is a good introductory link that further will allow you to rub up on the college French of…1964…or, so:

http://www.voisin.ch/dlok/index-1_f.html
