    You know it's a good birthday when the cake has a railway track switch on it, with the words "Let the journey begin!" written below it:)

    I find it rather interesting how American railways often have the rule (or at least de facto rule) of whistling before railway crossings, in morse code no less!

    I suppose that of whatever locomotive they decide to convert next (assuming they even get that far). I don't see them building a locomotive from the ground up when it's cheaper to just convert one....

    I still have to wonder why these weren't simply equipped with cabs at both ends like practically every other locomotives Kraus-Maffei built. I've never understood why American locomotives have only...

    Um... the baby was not run over by the train; he was merely pushed by it. It's an interesting incident this one. I can't recall ever hearing about anything similar. In fact, it makes me wonder what...

    The reason behind this locomotive - and those "funny" diesel-hydraulics was the interest of the German railways in finding alternative means of propulsion to the steam locomotives of the time....
