    Remember when there was freight on the Coast?

    I do remember the Coast line,when the 373 and 376 used to haul a** out of San Jose in the afternoon,with 3or 4 brand new U-25B's on the point and arrive in Taylor Yard,(LA) the next morning.Those where good times indeed......Thanks, Sam

    Mining/RR Findings in the CA Sierra Nevada's

    Don't know, i don't think it's from a CAT,or similar machine, it pretty old i think,because if you are correct about it being a casting,and not a forging,that would make it rather old altleast 60 years or more./..D/OT
