    ... the fact that all of the headend weight rests on driven wheels makes for an enormously powerful, if slow-moving engine.

    That makes it easy to chase... as long as there are roads and vistas. Those are in somewhat scant supply but not so scarce or hard to reach as to deny us a gratifying morning of picture taking. One of the vistas was at a swinging bridge that spanned the Greenbrier River. We took pictures of the bridge, and ljw went ...

The Climax design sports a single piston on each side of the boiler, mounted diagonally, with the force transferred thru a series of gears to two trucks under the firebox-and-boiler and two more under the (integral) tender.

    ... and Greenbrier Railroad. They don't have any trains running tonight or tomorrow, so tomorrow we're going to drive about 10 miles to Cass, WV, and check out the Cass Railroad.
