I can't count the number of movies that have trains in them in one way or another. Yep, trains still fascinate all of us. !!*ok*!!

Thanks for the Johnny Cash links Michael! Just watched it during the last hour and it is a really nice show. Beautiful mix of music and train knowledge, ok last one comes in only very short, but still. Have enjoyed it very much, beeing a Cash fan too. I didn't even know that something like that exist, as it is no where listed in official Cash bio/discographys !*brav*!

Here's another song for you: T.V. Smith - Runaway train driver - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MXrSjOGAjA8
T.V. was famous in the end 70s and beginning 80s as lead singer of british punk band "The Adverts", these days he is on the road as a solo guitar player and songwriter. This song is from 1992, taken from the album "march of the giants". Enjoy and don't get scared by his history, if you like Cash you'll like this song too :)

Whuuu? What was that? !*brav*!
Never heard of an ÖBB loco doing such sounds.
But I don't come behind the sense of this horn or whatever it was.

It is the way the inverters are changing the frequency through acceleration as more power is applied at the throttle. Obviously tuned this way on purpose. They all do it.

Casey Jones... I would have been 12 at that time, and was a railfan. I probably did watch it, but don't remember any of the details. Nice find!

It was a pretty "neat" show for its time.
You can find re-runs of the show if you search for them.
I too was about ten at the time,cripes,time flys. !*hp*!

An American Steam loco would have been even better. *!!wink!!*
