      Thanks for the link. I remember of the train wreck in Washington D.C. Union Station, but that involved a diesel engine.

    if you look closely at the bottom you will find some printing – there is what looks like a 1890 or something – maybe a year – yes it is blurry on one side which is called not as technologically advance focusing as what we have on today’s camaras. Have you ever looked at a train after it has plowed into and drug a vehicle for a ways down a track? Not much damage to the train compared to the vehicle that was hit! Why do so many people get so quick to think everything is Photoshopped?

    takes me back to the day when we had a train (Nancy Hanks) running from here (Savannah,Ga) to Atlanta,Ga. Of course the Nancy Hanks didn’t look like the train in this picture! But those were the good old days
