Thanks, Sam.

Wow, 70 mph and pulling all those cars against all that air drag. Can't see how anyone would ever doubt the power of coal/steam after seeing that !!!!

They've recently re-opened the rail line that runs through here, but I don't think PA is going to be giving us back the steam train that used to run the line. :cry:
