Ted and I have our tickets in hand for today's 3:30 PM return trip to Vancouver, BC.
Ted makes photo stops along the way to capture the energetic paint scheme: a roof of gold atop sweeping bands of royal blue and white. "This train looks as if it's moving even though it's standing still!", he remarks.

by Ted and George Blishak
Authors George and Ted Blishak Ted Blishak at the controls of the GM F7A. GEORGE SAYS: When Ted and I arrived at the railroad museum and I saw the Western Pacific F-7 diesel engine we would be driving, I immediately remembered the Lionel locomotive that Ted, as a youngster, purchased with his hard-earned savings from his newspaper route (and perhaps also his position as a Warner Brothers Theater usher). There was a lot of excitement at our house in Ambridge, PA, the day Ted brought that model locomotive home. We began to run it on his recreation room train layout, providing the power for his stainless-steel colored, four car mini-California Zephyr. And, yes, it was as enjoyable to operate the horn as Ted and I thought it would be. Our instructor was pleased and a bit surprised that we knew, and properly utilized, the dash-dash-dot-dash grade crossing horn signal. He mentioned that many of his students didn't know it. Our instructor made the session extra interesting by allowing us to test and grade ourselves on how accurately we could stop the locomotive at a couple of spots that he designated. We enjoyed the feeling of responsibility in operating this huge engine as well as we possibly could. We each made a couple of very minor errors in operating the controls. Perfectionists that Ted and I are, we got a little annoyed at ourselves for this, but they were minor errors indeed, not equipment or life threatening. Now back to Ted, who explains about Run 8.
