And while we're on this "train" of thought
- how about a whole flock of Canadian
National Railway's 6400-series streamlined
'Northerns'??!

Cool, I used to be into trains until cars got in my way...I like the old 30's 'advanced streamline design'!

Thanks for the train pics. I got to ride the Hiawathas for free when I was a kid by myself. My dad worked for the Milwaukee Road and had a pass for the family to use. Couldn't send a kid on AMTRAK these days.

One more on those incredible 120-plus-mph
"absolutely Art Deco to the max" PRR Baldwin
TI streamliners. Here's a Pennsylvania Rail
Road ad, circa 1945, promoting them. Besides
the locomotive, note all the smoke, steam and
fire belching from the factories in the background.
This was an era when such things were considered
a sign of progress and economic prosperity and
for better or worse, you'll never, ever see an ad
like this published today.

The Hairpin took a lot of damage during Irene's tantrum infact this entire section of the trail took a lot of damage with mud slides and erosion from the heavy water run off.

An original 1917 Autochrome of a Nieuport 17C-1 was taken by French army photographer
Paul Castelnau at a field near Haut-Rhin, France. Through most of the First World War, the
Nieuports were a favorite of pilots of many Allied countries, specifically because they were
fast, very agile and had an awesome climb rate. The nimble wing-and-a-half plane could,
however, fail if overstressed in a sustained hard dive, unlike the tougher, stiffer-handling
SPADs that entered service later in the war when Nieuports were finally becoming out-
classed by newer German fighters.

You can see the synchronized Vickers machine gun on the nose of the plane above. No way
to tell if the optional Lewis canister-fed is also mounted atop the upper wing. Powered by a
110-hp engine, the originally French-built Nieuport was a favorite of aces like Canadian W.A.
Bishop, Victoria Cross-winner Albert Ball and (though the U.S. formally entered the war
later) Yank Eddie Rickenbacker, among many others. This has always been my favorite allied
plane of WWI, so much so that I still have my HAWK 1/48 model and box, originally dated
1958. Photo THANKS to Wikipedia!
