the inverted locomotives of the Southern Pacific

September 24th, 2017 by admin

Because of tunnels and “snow galleries” that protected the locomotives from snow. But it was quickly realized that when ordinary locomotives went through these tunnels the smoke, soot, cinders and heat flies back and enters the control area, blinding the engineer, and that’s never a good thing.

The space in the tunnel is small, and as the steam engines became more powerful, the smoke became more daunting . And soon the locomotive engineers began to suffocate from this smoke it was a real threat to people’s lives.

And then the South Pacific leadership had an idea to move the car forward. In 1911 the Baldwin plant in Philadelphia got the first orders for the “Inverted” locomotives.

With this arrangement of the cabin the visibility was excellent, and smoke was no longer a problem for the crew.

that Ferguson that went to the South Pole in 1958

September 17th, 2015 by admin

In large measure the Expedition was successful due to the the help of Sir Edmund Hillary (of Mt. Everest fame) using three Ferguson tractors (the last picture). Hillary built a support base at the Ferguson tractorfar end, blazed a vehicle route up the Skelton Glacier and through the Western Mountains, and laid supply depots over 700 miles nearly to the South Pole. With just enough fuel, Hillary’s party pressed on to the South Pole, the first to get there since Scott’s ill-fated visit in 1912.

why has the 710 been left unfinished for 45 years?

the green dotted line is where there is no freeway, and it’s all surface streets, and stop lights, and delays, to get to Pasadena.

I’m constantly baffled that the 110 and the 710 can’t get across Alhambra and Pasadena, and get traffic moving between the 210 and the 10.

20% of the Los Angeles County population lives in the San Gabriel Valley and in the east/northeast of Los Angeles yet there is NO North and South freeway to connect the 10, the 210 and the 110.

In 2001, and 2006, the legal stuff was passed to get the road or tunnel completed. Nothing yet.

Once completed, the 710 tunnel will slash traffic clogging Alhambra streets by 61% and reduce 80,000 daily cut-through trips.

In March, Caltrans, in cooperation with the Los Angeles County Metro, released an environmental impact report detailing alternatives for closing the gap. 2,260 pages of it.

most unusual… I think you’ll agree. A Rolls Royce woody school bus served in Kenya to bus kids to soccer and cricket mateches, was built for a Maharajah as a regular Silver Ghost, but commandeered by the British Govt and built as an armored car for WW1 ended up used to drive HRH Princess Margaret to an agricultural show .
