Thread: railways

    Default railways

    Are there any railway enthusiasts (steam or diesel)? If so what Engines do you like and what railway company do you like e.g, GWR, LNWR, LNER etc?

    Ooohh yeah I *love* trains - both real ones and scale model ones. Personally, my favorites are CSX and Santa Fe lines, though, if I had to choose, I think the top of the list of my favorites would be Union Pacific.

    And, if it seems like something you'd be interested in, I do have my "trains group" here on the forums where rail-fans can gather and chat.

    I live near a CXS line. There's a restaurant my wife and I like to go to called The Depot, an old rail depot building. They have a big, wooden model train on display. On nights that we're lucky, the train goes by. I also bike on a bike/walking trail that was made from an old abandoned rail line. There's a very tall steel trestle bridge that crosses the trail, and sometimes the train will be running over my head as I bike beneath it.

    I'm not usually interested in trains, but for some random reason I found myself watching a training video about maintenance and fault diagnostics on Class 455 trains and... I was mesmerised by it!

    The instructions from about 4m10s are strangely fascinating and bewildering (for someone who knows nothing about trains).

    Yes I am a "foamer"!!!

    I love the big ones and the Small ones.

    My family worked for the Southern Pacific and REA.

    So I like SP, T&NO, Cotton belt the Pacific Elelectric.

    I collect everything china, Lamps, Time tables, etc.

    I have HO scale stuff getting ready to build a lay out.

    I love to chase trains and drive by the rail lines to see what is going through town.

    The is a 1 1/2 inch to the foot scale rail road club in Molalla, Oregon that I like to take the kids to and ride the trains.

    I will second the suggestion of joining the train group that is here in the group section.

    GWR man here, all the way (which is weird considering I lived in the South East for most of my life - LOL). I've always had an interest in steam engines and preserved railways (my family has close ties with the whole thing: we've all done stuff on the line at one point or another).

    I have been train cracked since my Dad pulled me out of bed at 1130 PM to see the 20th century limited change engines. I was three.
    Worked as a hostler and on the signal gang for the PC.

    Diesels for me so favourite company is BR (British Rail). Took engine numbers from about 1980-87.
