Remarks & Notes 
Locomotive Bling: When Southern Railway's Ps-4 Pacific number 1401 was cosmetically restored by a paint crew from a local auto body shop (under an outdoor shed in Alexandria) in 1961--in preparation for her enshrinement in the Smithsonian--it was decided to remove the rods and valve gear and have them chrome plated. Here's the engine's ultra-shiny right side eccentric crank, main rod and side rods on the main driver. Notice the Alemite grease fittings--one on the bearing linking the eccentic crank and rod, two on the main rod connection to the crank pin, and one on the side rod.

Pictures of things often unseen in the world of railroading. Interesting equipment, operations, and people that help the railroad go around.

Generally speaking, shots where less than a full engine is shown. But I want to feature details, not half engines or full cabs, and definitely not full nose shots. Just shots where someone has zoomed in with purpose.
Prototype for everything . . .

Do you ever get the feeling as a model railroader, that you just might be creating something not "prototypical?" Same here.
