Also of interest, On US-12 in the Irish Hills area there is a tourist trap that has a blue heavy weight car, that car was in fact President Eisenhower's personal car. It is now a hunted house attraction, which is a pity but it's there and can be viewed well if your traveling eastbound.CAT345C wrote:Pretty cool seeing that shot, I wonder what the track speed was back then.
On RRHX they have a timetable for the Jackson Branch that lists passenger at 60mph and freight at 30mph in 1913.
