This City Hall and public park are the eastern end of the historic Fillmore & Western Railway that runs west to Sana Paula in Ventura Country, California.
Diesel locomotives 100 & 101 are the streamliner era units from the Golden Age of rail travel. They were built in 1949 by the Electro Motive Division of General Motors for the Chicago & Northwestern Railway and came to Fillmore & Western Railway in 1992. Referred to as "F7's", these diesels keep the good times rolling for the Fillmore & Western dinner trains and daytime excursions.
Built by Alco in 1961 for the Southern Pacific Railroad, "Boris" now does regular service for Fillmore & Western Railway as the power unit for the famous Murder Mystery Dinner Train or the daytime excursions.

This is a official (souvenior ?)postcard published by Taiwan Railways Administration in connection with Philataipei2016 Exhibition held in Taipei, Taiwan from21.10.2016 -26.10.2016. I picked up this card from the Taiwan Railways stall at the exhibition.
I purchased this card when I visited Alishan Forest National Park in Taiwan recently (24.10.2016). I was fortunate to take a ride on the forest railway now operating as a Tourist Train. On this day this very same locomotive was in operation.
