These are excerpts from National Geographic’s “The Great Indian Railway”(1995), probably the best documentary ever on the Indian Railways. As a young boy, I used to travel to Grandma’s place by the Howrah Mail from Madras. In 1989, on one such trip, My dad pointed out to a gigantic engine puffing smoke in the shed at Madras central as our train was leaving and said: “Manu, look, that’s a steam engine”. I forgot about steam engines later. In 1999(10 years later), I watched the National Geographic’s special screening of this documentary on TV. I remembered my encounter with the puffing beasts in 1989. I couldn’t stop crying by the end of this documentary. Starting in the early 80’s the Steam engines of the Indian Railways have been slowly phased out of all the main lines in favor of Electric and Diesel locomotives due to economic pressures. By the turn of the 90’s, it had become a rare sight to see a Steam-driven train. You can buy the DVD or VHS of this 115 minute documentary on nationalgeographic.com. It costs including US local postage. Video Rating: 4 / 5

One of the garden railway clubs had a model of a Milwaukee Road Hiawatha train, including this model of the famous observation car Cedar Rapids, built to scale. The cars were so long that they got hung up on the bridge just outside the layout’s yard. Here, the modeler who built the train (standing) operates the throttle while another club member (kneeling) ensures that the models don’t get damaged by the bridge.
A childrens story at Christmas.The recent snow, although looking attractive when it first arrived, had been causing problems locally, with shops running out of basic foods and car drivers having trouble climbing icy hills. A little toy train also discovered it gave him problems too!
