  • State of the Site - November 2023

    Happy Thanksgiving! I know we've got a lot to be thankful for in our household, and I hope everyone gets a chance to spend some time with those they care about and celebrate the good things in their lives.

    To celebrate fall a little late, I've been having some fun in the Upper Peninsula on MLT's Michigan Iron Ore route, which I've been meaning to pick up for a while.

    It's my idea of a perfect route -- not too large, and one where you can spend as little or as long as you...

  • Riding the Milwaukee Road... Sort of.

    This week, I got to combine two of my hobbies.... Off-roading and railroads.

    I've written before about some of our ATV rides in Tennessee, and we recently acquired a four seat Honda Pioneer 700 UTV to add to our off-road "toy collection".

    For those who have no idea ATV/UTV means... a "traditional" ATV (all-terrain vehicle) is a three or four-wheeler with handle bar steering and a motorcycle style saddle seat. A UTV (utility-trail vehicle) has a steering...

  • New Ad-Free Pass

    If you currently use an ad blocker and are not a paying member on the site, you may have started to see a additional message asking you to disable your ad blocker or pay for a subscription.

    I've made no secret that this site costs money to operate, and while many of our visitors have been willing to help support it through First Class Memberships or a FastPass, many more do not.

    Some of you may not see a direct value in paying for a full year membership or a one-month...

  • Rememberance Day / Veterans Day

    On this Eleventh Day of the Eleventh Month, in the United States we honor our Veterans. Worldwide, many nations celebrate Remembrance Sunday, which this year falls on Sunday, November 12th.

    From the trenches to the oceans, islands, and deserts, Veterans answered the call when your country asked.

    You fought to protect our values, and paid a heavy price in doing so. Many continue to pay the price.

    Today, we remember those who fell in service and honor those...

Random Style of the Day: Commonwealth Maroon

Commonwealth Maroon is a deep reddish-brown color used by Commonwealth Railways, the Australian government-owned railway company, from 1949 to 1975. It was easy to see from a distance, even in the harsh Australian outback, and it was also relatively resistant to fading in the sun.
