    I have had a number of cab rides over the years. I’ve rode on 3254 on the Scranton Limited at Steamtown, New Hope and Ivyland 40 twice, as well as Southern 630 and 4501 at the TVRM. I also had a chance to run Lehigh Valley Coal 126 during the At The Throttle event at the North Carolina Transportation Museum. In terms of my favorite cab ride, it would be my first trip on 40 at the NH&I. It was on the day of New Year’s Eve and there was still about 6-8 inches of snow. The cold air combined with the smell of burning coal and the speed made it one of my favorite cab rides.

    I would consider myself extremely lucky to get a cab ride in these engines and the only other engines that probably would top my favorite would be to be in the cab of a run at speed with either N&W 611 or one of the Union Pacific engines.
