Thomas The Tank Engine in Globe, Arizona! With another Shocking Surprise!

Recommended Posts

The weekends of March 5/6 and 12/13, Thomas the Tank Engine was/will be running on some old Southern Pacific ( Now Arizona Eastern Railway ) Tracks, down in Globe, Arizona. I decided to check it out. It took me about 2 1/2 hours to get there from my area.

 

As Thomas would say, "It was a Splendid day"!

those are the C1s that were supposed to go to the ski train.

Ahh okay. Yeah, the side decal that covers the old (MTA) LIRR logo states "Rio Grande" - "La Veta Pass Route - Scenic line of the World"

Cool pics and vids!

Very nice pics! Yeah, Kamen beat me to it, it is a C1. one of cars from that group of test cars. I wonder if they look the same interior wise as the C3s?

 

Here is the best interior shot I got of the lower level, where one of my girls and I sat.
