    Default And tell us why

    I put down a vote for steam. I guess I like the mechanics and dynamics of steaming. Sure nostalgia is also part of it and currently I like running the Baldwin 4-6-0 Sumpter Valley Railway #50 on the San Diego and Arizona Route. A lot of fun out of these two items from our file library. I haven't bothered getting all the additional .zips for that route but made a few consists up and went driving with my head hanging out of the cab window :) I guess I like the diesel freight activites as a close second. Best, BK

    Default RE: And tell us why

    I'm just young enough to have missed steam while growing up. I loved the older diesels, the GP9s and ALCo RS's and even the SD40's that were so common out in western Canada. I'm not a big GE fan but I even like watching them.

    Still, we have people that becomes happy criticizing.

    If I think to post ia a waste of time, I would never post.
    If I am against polls,I would not read them.

    Chances are that a person like Johansteam, who is a charter member, possibly a moderator,would go to a cinema to watch a Hitchcock, knowing previously that it was a SUSPENSE and then leaving complaining on that.

    I prefer the Diesels. GM all models except the BL2 that I call Ugly Thing.

    Wow. And I thought that I had picked a poll topic that nobody could possibly get upset about no matter how hard they tried. :-)

    if you go democrat somebody will be republican.
    If you go republican, this same person will go democratic.
    If you do not declare your vote, he will be independent.
    But if you declare independent he will be ....democratic or republican.......or both.

    They are always against...
