In the late 40s early 50s, most railroads in Bristol, VA where I lived, switched from steam engines to the sleek diesels. I thought they were beautiful. I say “most” because in the mountains the diesels were not powerful enough to pull heavy coal cars up the steep inclines in the mountains. There steam engines reigned.
Many of the railroads in Bristol chose sleek diesels. I believe they are awesome.
Old is definitely gold. I have a lot of good memories of the past.
I totally agree with you. Old trains have that nostalgic vibe that I really miss.
I like the blue color on this old train. I think this is a good old train, looks so classic. 🙂
Wow, what a beauty. One thing about this trains is that they are very strong, stronger than what we have today. And really slower
This train looks strong mere looking at it. I am fully in support of this point.
Oh yess, old trains can be majestic and reminders of great memories of past times.
Old trains for me is classy. It is a good ride too.
Me and you both Tom. I also prefer old trains.
Something about old trains just makes them so beautiful. Much better than the modern ones.
I have noticed you have quite a few old train photos. You must be very passionate about them.
You should publish a book with all your train photos. That’d be amazing!!
Every part of the photo is in good focus. Very well executed shot.
I like how strong these old trains were. They were practically indestructible!
This train looks old but beautiful and strong. I want to try this one if restored. Great quality.
It’s difficult to see these trains nowadays. That makes this very special.
I would give anything to ride in one of these old trains. I never got the chance to do so.
I’m surprise the train is in such a good condition. It is definitely a couple of decades old
The train is curiously short. I doubt it was a passenger train.
This relic of a train belongs in a museum. It should be restored and displayed for people to view.

I am always fascinated by trains. Even though I have not ride one, I would like to try to ride a bullet train in the future. This one looks so vintage that it might be wise to keep it intact for future bidders.
