This isn't my image but one of a train that used to frequent our NYC rail "shops" for repair. I thought this thread could use a bump.

The north entrance to Yellowstone National Park. At one time this is where and how the majority of visitors entered.

Great set!

Good news: the Lufthansa Airport Express passing Castle Rheinstein.

http://www.burg-rheinstein.de/

Bad news: traded it last week, as one of a group of castle cards.

Question: why do we never find castles or railways in the postcard bargain box?

Cheers,

/s/ ikeyPikey

ikeyPikey, A great looking card. Who would think castles and trains go so well together. In the mid 70s I was assigned to the 3d Infantry Division and stationed in Wurzburg Germany and spent a great deal of my free time playing Frisbee on the grounds of Marienberg Castle.

I belatedly realized that this one was actually a triple-header: airline, train & castle.

Hopefully, the recipient will object to my half of our trade, and I can get it back ;)

Cheers,

Great cards in here folks.

All the card in this thread are quite fascinating.

That souvenir booklet of the El Capitan is quite interesting. For a train enthusiast, that would be terrific.

Nice card stampfan.

We used to have a member in our local club that is into model trains. I still see him on occasion. I found out that he also collects trains on postcards and stamps.

It is amazing how one hobby can lead into another.

Many thanks go to the knowledgeable members on the SCF who helped spark the interest and appreciation I now have for R.R. postcards.

More trains for the subject, moving from passenger trains to logging trains, these first three are unused.
Engine #1 & 3 of the Fort Bragg Railroad Fort Bragg, Cal. About 1915



This next card is also of a Fort Bragg Railroal train with a load of Redwood logs for the mill. About 1910




This is the North Fork Bridge of the Elk Creek Railroad. This logging railroad was 27 miles long and crossed 101 tressels. This bridge was 130 feet high and 484 feet long. If you look closely, those are men standing atop the redwood logs. About 1882.



This is a used post card from Elk Cal. 1912 Another view of the North Fork Bridge. An interesting side note, in 2001, I worked on a new home built overlooking the town of Elk. the house was build on the old rail yard of the Elk Creek Railway, 1/2 mile north of the left end of this bridge. First day I was on the job site , I parked my truck and tripped on a brakeman's key when I got out! Still have it.



This next postcard was used in Dec of 1906 Eureka Cal to Fresno Cal. A train load of redwood logs headed for the mill.



Another load of redwood logs in Humboldt County, near Eureka Cal. This card was used in 1911 from Erueka to Napa, Cal
