AFS Bedford Green Goddess SYH-292 by rlkitterman
AFS Bedford Green Goddess SYH-292
Introduced in 1953 as a derivative of the Bedford RL military vehicle, the Bedford RLHZ self-propelled pumper was an Auxiliary Fire Service (AFS) "appliance" better known as the Green Goddess.  It was not primarily a fire truck, as its intended role was to pump water out of lakes, rivers, canals, or other places to assist dedicated fire engines in the event of nuclear attack or other emergencies.  During a series of firefighters' strikes in 1977, the 1978-1979 Winter of Discontent, and 2002-2003, the Green Goddesses were driven by military firefighters to replace civilian fire trucks.  Finally superseded by new "appliances," most Green Goddesses have been either scrapped or sold abroad.  SYH-292 was meant to be sent to Montenegro but was bought by Mr. Ian Scales, who drove the truck during the 1977 strike, and donated to the Yorkshire Air Museum.

Pan Am Boeing Airliners by rlkitterman
Pan Am Boeing Airliners
Pan American World Airways had a history of buying large Boeing airliners, such as these two Corgi models on display at the Patuxent River Naval Air Museum in Maryland.  The Boeing 314 four-motor flying boat (NC18605 Dixie Clipper) entered service in 1939, crossing the Atlantic and Pacific oceans before, during, and after World War II.  After converting to jetliners early with the Boeing 707, Pan Am then bought the world's first jumbo jet, the four-engine Boeing 747 (N753PA Jet Clipper Westwind), which can carry about 400 to 600 passengers at 600 miles per hour.

1920 JGR Pacific C51.5 by rlkitterman
1920 JGR Pacific C51.5
Designed by combining elements from American, British, and German passenger engines imported for evaluation, the Japanese Government Railways (JGR) C51 class was Japan's first domestically-built Pacific (4-6-2) steam locomotive class.  In total, 289 locomotives were built from 1919 to 1928 by various manufacturers, and the C51 Pacifics could be seen on the Tokaido Main Line's Tsubame limited express and other trains until stronger, more modern locomotives such as the C62 Hudsons replaced them.  Even after their demotion, they continued to influence locomotive design and remained in service until Japanese National Railways (JNR) retired the last steam locomotives in the 1970s.  The oldest survivor, and therefore Japan's oldest remaining Pacific, is C51.5, which was built by JGR's own Hamamatsu Locomotive Works in 1920 and is now on display at the Saitama Railway Museum in Omiya.

Hikawa Maru in Yokohama by rlkitterman
Hikawa Maru in Yokohama
As my boat approached the Yamashita Park/Chinatown pier, I turned my head, squinted my eyes to avoid being blinded by the setting sun, and took this picture of Nippon Yusen Kaisha (NYK) ocean liner Hikawa Maru sitting at anchor in Yokohama.

A few days ago, I posted my picture of LNER steam locomotive No. 4771 Green Arrow both here on Deviant Art and on a Facebook railfan page.  The National Railway Museum's Locomotion Museum in Shildon saw this picture and shared it on their own official Facebook page.  Thanks NRM for sharing this picture from a railfan, and for displaying the engine so well!
