I have never seen a new participant in a forum post so much with so little to say. So many threads started without any initial contribution whatsoever and with unfocused, broad topics, almost mindless. Really odd forum behavior. I just don't get it!

I do agree with most of you on this forum, however TC&W isn't breaking any rules! It might be a bit of an annoyance to have such a thread, but WHO CARES! Leave it alone!

'specially on those shortline branches! Anyway I'd like to pose a question on this thread; What was the last shortline to give up steam engines on their regular freight runs? I know LAL stopped in 1977.

The next closest I could find to '77 was the Magma Arizona Railroad on September 5, 1967.

Not sure if it counts but the Northwesrtern Steel & Wire mill in Illinois used ex-GTW 0-8-0s as their power until 12/80. The Crab Orchard & Egyptian (also in Illinois) tried going back to 100% steam power in the late 1970s into the very early 1980s before selling #17 to the Boone & Scenic Valley in Iowa.
