Yes Bruce it costs mega bucks, but hey, its got to be worth saving such a magnificent piece of heritage ;>)

Of course, for a few megabucks more you buy A NEW ONE

Cheers

Greetings, Jenper, and how are you doing on this first day of 2009? I hope all is well.

I'm delighted that you enjoyed this shot of "Elizabeth," and I thank you so much for the yellow star!

I think she's a beautiful old locomotive, and I'm very happy to share her here with everyone on Panoramio to admire.

Thank you again for your kindness, and I hope you will have a wonderful year ahead in 2009.

Very best wishes to you in Spain,

Greetings again, Sue!

In my ongoing struggle to catch things up around this gallery, I just discovered two of your really nice comments above!

I slipped over and went through a few more of your train shots, and I'm loving them! What a terrific journey! I'm going to come back and look at more little by little, so as not to wear out my welcome. ( or my fingers!) =)

I thank you so much for your enthusiasm and interest in this sweet Locomotive, and I too hope that perhaps someday there will be more to life than just sitting in the field for her.

We'll keep our fingers crossed.

Thank you for your sweet and informative visits. No one can entertain quite like you, and I enjoy each and every word so much.

I hope you are doing well, and I'll talk to you again very soon.

Warmest regards,

Mary Alice
