Vrlo zanimljiva fotografija iz 1958. Ranžirni yard u Denveru. Jako je zanimljivo da postoje 60 godina stare fotke iz USA ove kvalitete i rezolucije, a gotovo je nemoguće naći dobre fotografije naših željeznica od kraja 80-ih ili početka 90-ih... :(

U prvom redu su dva FGE reefera (Fruit Growers Exprerss), a vidi se i dio stočnog vagona, vjerojatno CB&Q.

Parnjača je C&S 608, 2-8-0 tip.

Sljedeća je kompozicija boxcara, slijeva: Southern Pacific (možda), MILW ribside 40' boxcar, onda jedan kojem se ne može pročitati vlasnik, zatim New York Central (NYC) 40' boxcar starijeg tipa, niže visine, onda Louisville & Nashville box, CB&Q (Burlington Route) boxcar.

Iza njih vide se dva rana covered hoppera, sivi i crni. Lijevo od sivog hoppera je i PRR boxcar, njih je bilo toliko u to doba da je gotovo svaki vlak u bilo kojem dijelu Amerike imao jedan ili dva PRR vagona.

Sasvim desno ispred zgrade s "Mimara tirkiznim" vratima su još dva 40' boxcara, RI (Rock Island) i C&NW (Chicago and North Western).

Ovaj model lokomotive je počeo raditi Rivarossi još u 60-im, sa njihovim kalupima ih je radila i Mehanotehnika
tako da ih ima još dosta živućih.

Jedan amer je nedavno kupio jednu Riva. za šaku dolara pa ju je odlučio preurediti

U tenderu je dodao još olova i nešto pameti kako bi se inače dosta sirovi tro-polni motor bolje ponašao

Za sigurniju vožnju je svakako dobro staviti dodatne limiće za uzimanje struje.

Dva pitanja za znalce; pročitao sam da je postojala u Americi kompanija koja je svoje lokomotive označavala samo brojevima, ne i slovima, ako netko zna nešto o tome, molim pomoć; imao sam u računalu kartu kako su se mijenjale, nastajale i nestajale kompanije u Americi, naravno željezničke, zbog nekih problema sa računalom to se izbrisalo, a ne mogu više naći pa ako netko ima molim link!
