   Ole buzzard  Another member of the Von Swearingen brothers' 2-8-4 family, Chesapeake & Ohio #2716, also built from the same blueprints as Pere Marquette #1226 and Nickel Plate #765. The only differences are mainly cosmetic such as placement of the headlights and the styling of the air pump covers.

   Rake King  G2B, your desert images should all be gathered up and published into a cocktail table book. Or better still, for Doctor's offices, replacing those Newsweek from 1958. WW and I could spend hours looking at your beautiful photos, right WW?

   Ole buzzard  Iowa Pacific ran a Chicago-Prairie Du Chien, Wis., excursion this weekend. With the Wisconsin state capitol building in the background, the train's two E8s and matching train set on the causeway at Monona Bay this afternoon. It is quite a beautiful train in its chocolate and orange scheme.

   Ole buzzard  The city of Owosso, Michigan, is celebrating its Trainfest this weekend. The highlight of the festivities is the reunion of Pere Marquette locomotive 1225 and Nickel Plate locomotive 765. If they appear similar, it is because they both share the 2-8-4 wheel arrangement, and were built from the same blueprints. At the time they were built, both the Pere Marquette and Nickel Plate were under the control of brothers by the name of Von Swearingen. One of their objectives was to standardize the motive power on the railroads under their control.
