    That NYC steamer on Disc drivers (I think) looks great! The AFT 4449 as well. Thanks for sharing!

    I am trying to recall ever hearing or reading what the purpose was for the design of those drivers?

    SimRacin Photo- that’s a 3/4 mile marker. Common on the UP Double Main in Iowa.

    Or too expensive except for the top varnish on some railroads that sought every tiny advantage over the competition (think NYC vs PRR).

    The diesel writing on the wall clearly legible in the last decades.
