I seem to never tire of looking at photos of Knott's Berry Farm's huge locomotives; and this picture is no exception. I love the colors... a suitably businesslike blue-black, and vermillion and gold highlights. What a beauty!
And now for a different train altogether, here's "Old Betsy", taking a much-deserved rest after many years of hauling ore. You can still see her at Knott's today!
And lastly, let's watch people pan for real gold, for a mere 50 cents. As a kid, I treasured my little plastic vial with its grains of gold; In fact I still have two of them. The question is, what happened to all the others? Lost in the course of many moves across the country I assume.
