For the Halloween month, I give you all...


Okay, okay, I know the diesel pusher is obvious. But still, it's kind of creepy to watch them move in such a hollow, clanking way, devoid of the steam that once gave them life...

god, i really really hope that someone oiled the journals and crank pins. I fear that screeching sound are brass journal bearings being heated and shreaded to bits. A common mistake when moving old locomotives that have not moved in years.

One would hope. Have no idea though. I found the video on YouTube and all I know is that it was taken in Poland. I have no idea why they were being moved or what their destination or fate was. :/

I'm going to guess that the missing rod brass on the big end is probably to blame for the clank!

The cylinders and crossheads have not seen oil for some time either.
