Default From The Rumor Department

With all the talk this past weekend about the A & J visiting Roanoke Shops, how about chewing on these thoughts.



Norfolk Southern's N&W 611 Returning to the High-Iron



Watch your local newstand for the complete story, but don't look too hard just yet !!!

Alternate rumor - Bob Lyndall unearths more classics from his collection and starts posting to RP again!

Great cover - you should send it to TIME and ask them to fill in the pages.
Never say never, before NS had a steam program, they didn't! Perhaps now the time is not ripe but it's good to interest!

Until the Lost Gems feature is created here on RP, have a gander at these classics - great job Bob.

Thanks for sharing that link Mitch. There is some great stuff in that collection.

This one is one of my all time favorites. I forgot about this shot:

Mitch, you must be clairvoyant.

I've been scanning some 6x7 transparencies the past couple days which I never bothered with before. Most everthing to this point has been strickly from slides.

So yes there may well be a handful of new submissions from this old & ailing railfan within the next couple days. Not a bunch, but perhaps 6 to 10 which should compliment the previous 90.

Unfortunately, I'm just not able to get out shooting at the present time like I once did.

BTW, Brandon Smith - aka quiksmith10, you obviously have a great sense of taste (Bob said in his usual humble manor) !!!

Thanks Everyone !!! I'd guess from the user comments that most of you enjoyed today's additions.

Since I'm rather partial to one image in particular, 1218 @ Coopers, I thought I'd show you how much detail there really is in this frame. My original is from a 6x7 negative printed to a custom 8x10. I then flatbed scanned the print @ 4448x5592, and cropped out the image below & resized it to 800x500:



When I originally printed this image back in 1988 I took the liberty of printing a handful of 30x40's & one 40x50 which I've kept for myself. I may be biased, but I dare say it's a pretty impressive piece.
