Big Tim

Okay, it is a little off topic, but this cartoon gives a nice slice of railroads in the US in 1949 as they were transitioning from steam to diesel. It was a promotional piece for Timkin roller berings (note the youtube text got the date wrong, it was (c) 1949, can't anyone read Roman anymore, grin). And hey, it isn't too far off topic, since if you are reading this you probably like trains and maybe haven't completely forgotten the magic of childhood (not to mention the fact that back in those days the target audience for the cartoons were actualy adults).

For the film, see
