Published by Tide-mark, Those Remarkable Trains 2018 wall calendar opens to 13.75 x 20.5 inches.
Lines and Locomotives featured in the 2018 calendar include:
Denver and Salt Lake 209, (Class 76, a 2-6-6-0 Articulated) with an auxiliary water car in tow, is coming through Utah Junction, Colorado, just north of Denver’s North Yard on February 7, 1946. The Rio Grande merged with the Denver and Salt Lake the next year and 209 became D&RGW 3369. This tea kettle remained in service for the Rio Grande until April of 1951, when it was retired.
Erie Railroad 2715, a Class K-4, a 4-6-2, is on a commuter train at the busy Jersey City, New Jersey Terminal, looks like late Spring 1953. (
Southern Pacific 2335 and 2350, Two Class T-28 Ten Wheelers, both seen in this view with auxiliary tenders, are leaving Cantile, California with a passenger special on October 17, 1954.
Louisville and Nashville “Big Emma” 1953, a Class M-1 (2-8-4) is taking a northbound coal train across the 233 foot high Red River Bridge near Trap, Kentucky on June 5, 1956.
Chesapeake and Ohio 1644, a Class H-8 Allegheny (2-6-6-6) is rolling a westbound freight along at a good clip at Eagle, West Virginia on June 6, 1956. The H-8 was an impressive locomotive; Chesapeake and Ohio eventually owned sixty of them, all constructed by the Lima Locomotive Works between 1941 and 1948. As good as they were, Diesels had arrived to stay. A few months after this picture was taken, 1644 and all other H-8’s had been retired, some with only eight years of service.
Chicago, Burlington and Quincy Class 05 Northern (4-8-4) 5631 is leading a westbound sixty car freight underneath the High Street Bridge at Aurora, Illinois on October 10, 1956.
Chicago and Illinois Midland 502, a Class A-1 American (4-4-0) built by the Baldwin Locomotive Works for the C&IM in 1928, sits in a siding with a northbound passenger train at Oakford, Illinois as 655, a 1917 vintage Alco-Brooks 2-10-2, is passing by with a southbound coal train on June 3, 1950. The Midland had three of these small passenger locomotives, Numbers 500 through 502; they were the last locomotives of this wheel type to be used in passenger service. About three months after the last passenger train operated on May 8, 1953, 500 and 502 were scrapped, 501 having suffered that fate in 1950.
West Side Lumber Company Shay #8 has another load of logs rolling toward the sawmill at Tuolumne, California, coming through Flume in August 1958. As a concession to the intense Summer sun, note the umbrella on the rear of the locomotive for the head brakeman.
Boston and Maine 3644, a 1911 vintage Class P-2-a Pacific (4-6-2) is approaching the station at Wakefield Junction, Massachusetts with five carloads of homebound commuters on July 30, 1954.
Colorado and Southern 908, a 2-10-2, is working a southbound freight on the Joint Line through the south end of Castle Rock, Colorado on April 2, 1950.
Its bonanza days long behind it, Virginia and Truckee 26, a 4-6-0 built by the Baldwin Locomotive Works in 1907, is rattling southbound out of Washoe, Nevada, about sixteen miles south of Reno with a five car mixed train on June 14, 1946. Rail service, such as it was, would continue until May 31, 1950. The line was then abandoned and Engine 26 was dismantled shortly afterward.
Canadian Winter with all of its snow and cold has arrived at Scott Junction, Quebec on March 1, 1960, as Canadian Pacific 1074 arrives with a local freight.
