Eastern End of Fillmore & Western Railway, U. S. A.

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.

F-7A Locomotives 100 & 101 - Fillmore & Western Railway, U.S.A.

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.

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.
