She looks good covered in snow, doesn't she! Great angle, Frank!

The Polar Express!
Frank L Croston.: Very good, Ray...I wish I had thought of that!
Ce train a l'air d'être figé dans la neige.
Frank L Croston.: It looks that way, Martine, it is actually there permanently .

Lovely - it must have spent its working life hauling things across the prairie
Frank L Croston.: It was employed by the 'Arizona timber and lumber co'', mostly around Flagstaff. Chris.

Need to light the fire; that soon melt the snow. Anorak time: Its a Baldwin 2-8-0 oil burner built in January 1911.
Frank L Croston.: Indeed, Alan. Spot on with your description, hang that anorak up now....
Only in America would a locomotive have white wall tyres grin

Cracking picture Frank
Frank L Croston.: Thank you, Bill, I can't swear to it, but I think I have seen loco's in the U.K. with them.
It makes a change to see an old engine covered with snow Frank.
Frank L Croston.: It does seem unusual doesn't it, Andrew.
Very cool. Even when we have lots of snow this is something I would not see. No trains here.
Frank L Croston.: No trains...:-( Poor you, Mary...smile
Worth wading through the snow to get this shot Frank, a fine old engine. Tell me Frank, on this weeks Michael Portillo alot of the lines he travels over seem to be single line even though they are main line routes, or rowtes as they say it, carrying passenger and freight trains, is that the general case away from big cities?
Frank L Croston.: I thought it was worth it, Brian. I can only speak about the lines I have seen, and they all seem to be double lines, certainly through here they are, with 80 to a 100 freight trains a day, sometimes more.
Thatäs quite a snowfall + makes a great pic!
Frank L Croston.: That it was, Tom! Thank you.
it's a mountain engine Frank... they are tougher than nails... and he has a plow on the front....petersmile
Frank L Croston.: It would have to be, Peter, working this area.
