Ride along SN 62 (Shaky Video Warning)
The dialogue at the begiining of the video was from two volunteers of the museum.
The motorman was GREAT! He really cranked open the throttle and got those electric traction motors humming with that Birney car rocking down the track.
This was shot by my buddy and I'm the lumpy guy in the last 5 seconds of the video.

Can't quite imagine anything that would be more exciting to see run again than
that Western Pacific locomotive - perhaps a NYC Hudson?

It's a shame the locomotive rarely gets captured and shared - locked away in
a tight spot?

SN No. 62 is gorgeous - thanks for sharing!

I said “Hudson”, but that’s a Northe… err, Niagara. What I meant to say, however, was Mohawk! Specifically NYC No. 3001 in Indiana.

Or 2923 in St Louis!

Sorry, Mitch, I didn't even look, just assumed Hudson. I can provide a Hudson.

That had to be photoshopped, no Niagaras or Mohawks were strealined.  I don't even know where that came from. The one I thought I selected was definitely a Hudson.

I said Mokawk because two still exist which is more than we can say
for any NYC Hudsons.  Now, that streamlined Niagara, lol!  Maybe it's
a real photo, and it's in a barn  - perhaps next to a pair of Alco Sharks.

Mitch, are you to TO webmaster? I seem to remember your name as such. I am having a terrible time trying to renew my membership.

Not in this reality - perhaps in another dimension.

TO webmaster is Todd Clark.  
Not sure if Todd has help.
My renewal was straightforward and easy.

Where did the SN 62 operate when it was in service?
