   MeiDei  Every year National Geographic has a contest for best photographer for the year, this is one of 37 finalists - for the train lovers here - this is crossing a mountain pass in Switzerland in Winter.

   StormCnter  I posted this on the Suggested Viewing wall, but since it's made up of photos and drawings, this might be a good place, too. This is a 17 year old high schooler's history project. Our history in 2 minutes. It moves very fast. I can' only imagine how long it took him to compile all those photos.

   Ole buzzard  More of my favorite locomotive: N&W #611. Here we see her powering through Elliston, VA, eastbound under stormy and rainy skies.

   HopeandGlory  Hello Mei . . . these started blooming in early March and could continue until the end of April, it depends on heat and getting enough rainfall.

   MeiDei  It must be lovely to look at first thing in the morning. Our daffodils are under 4" of today's snowfall, we may lose them as we did the crocus after a warm spell followed by really cold weather.

   HopeandGlory  Hello Buzz . . . Yes they are and they are still blooming, they will bloom a little longer as we had a nice shower today and more promised Mon. and Wed., so hopefully they'll last thru' April.

   Ole buzzard  For this rail adventure, we'll head north to the White Pass & Yukon, a tourist line that travels between Skagway AK and the US/Canada border in British Columbia.

The White Pass & Yukon's "rotary fleet" consisting of vintage snowplow #3 (Cooke - 1899 ) is marching upgrade trailed by twin steam locomotives #73 (Baldwin 2-8-2 blt. 5-47 ) and #69 (Baldwin 2-8-0 blt. 4-07 ) and coach 211 as it heads for White Pass summit and the Canadian border to do battle with the snow drifts in the time honored tradition. This is the task for which she was built 111 years ago. The train is traversing the high line and is just shy of 16 miles from Skagway and tidewater but has already climbed over 2000 feet. Here the train is curling over the curved wooden trestle of bridge 15C and into one of two tunnels on the line (250 ft long tunnel 15 ). This shot was taken from the platform of the following passenger train as we sat near MP 12.2 looking across the canyon of the Skaguay River which is some 1000 ft below the train clinging to the mountain side of the White Pass' "high line."
