  •  What is it with the Brits and their odd gauges? (2+ / 0-)

    I read somewhere that each different colony in Africa had a different gauge of rail so that building a continental network was thwarted by design.
    Gotta love the enthusiasts that form these preservation societies. Like a bunch of model train guys that grew up insofar as their toys got bigger.
    We have a group like that here in CT at the mouth of the river.
    I'm not knowledgeable enough about trains to tell you what their rollingstock is, other than, it's cool!
    And, it's keeping a piece of CT's history alive and functional.
    If you are in the area and trains trip your trigger, this is a must see.

    If I ran this circus, things would be DIFFERENT!
