Historic Steam Train to convey Her Majesty BBC news:
The historic steam locomotive that will haul the train carrying the Queen, during Wednesday's royal opening of the new Borders railway, has arrived in Scotland.
The Union of South Africa was built to haul express trains between Edinburgh and London.
Now it is being prepared for the Pullman carriage which will carry the royal party.
After a decade of restoration, the Flying Scotsman is nearing its return:http://www.bbc.com/news/uk-33584691
I found the article about the discovery and recovery of the aforementioned locomotive from the Suwannee River:https://news.google.com/newspapers?nid=1346&dat=19790513&id...
I actively search for information of riverboats sunken in rivers but never thought to look for a locomotive.
I don't recall Orthodox Churches being famous for rolling in the aisles. It is strange to see Churches without pews but apparently that is just their tradition.
This locomotive was found and recovered from the Suwannee river in 1979. It is from the 1850-55 period and is on permanent display at the Florida Department of Agriculture here in Tallahassee, FL.
It was a logging locomotive believed to have fallen from a barge during shipping.
Since this picture was taken, it has had some further restoration/preservation work done and a shelter built over it.
Perhaps it retains the hand rails in case of a bumpy service?
A curious train conversion:
My understanding is that Orthodox stand for their services so this seems fairly practical.
