Zach Pumphery General Very cool, but I do say, the white ditchlights look...awkward. 11/10/2005 1:39:22 PM
Kevin Nelson General In another 25000 miles, you will never notice the ditch lights are white. Cool Tho ;-) 11/20/2005 5:52:58 AM
Robert Mckenney General That Little Box you see on the side of the track with the hoses is called what is known as a Flange Greaser NS 2652 shown here passing over the flange Greaser Flange Greasers are used for Steam Engines for traction on the rails when wet. 12/21/2005 3:05:15 AM

Larry Hawkes General Very nice! 4/14/2007 8:03:28 PM
Virgil Fitzpatrick General Flange Greasers add a touch of lubricant to the flanges of the wheels to take the edge off them during a tight turn. This in turn slows down track wear and prolongs the rail without replacement. Now to the picture....I love the look of a new engine. Good shot. 7/24/2007 6:04:01 PM
