    Today's foray down the 5th Sub from Logan is a long train of empty stack cars, heading for storage again. What makes this trip notable is that it's late in the afternoon and the sun is low in the west, creating some interesting hi and low lights Author The Montana Rail Link Railfan Society The...

    That's the Indian Pacific 'cause it runs between the Pacific Ocean on the East Coast, to the Indian Ocean on the West Coast. Includes the longest straight stretch of railway in the world across the Nullarbor Plain (297miles). The trackage itself is known as the Trans Australia Railway.

    Slip Coaches

    It would seem that this method was used to enable the forward part of the train, to save time in the total journey by not having to stop at the station served by the "slip coach/'s".

    There's something I just realized with that GP35 repair. The truck frames don't leave the chassis at all, only the axles do, because they are just the same as the truck assemblies on other non-powered rolling stock. Only sitting on the bearing boxes.

    The forgotten RR

    Not models, but an unusual sight in Montana and as I recall, just before AMTRAK stopped offering this service to private car excursions. Climbing the eastern side of Bozeman Pass with the AAPRCO excursion, with MRL assistance. From the rear

    It was a clip from a Sc-Fi movie of some repute. The similarity between HAL and the rear light appealed to me, plus both had rather unusual ends.
