The annual Great Steam Train race through Sydney's inner western suburbs. The year it was Garratt 6029 against the recently restored "Nanny" 3526. Unfortunately it was raining again this year. An unfortunate slowing of 3526 and train near Ashfield reduced the "racing" well before the scheduled finish at Strathfield.

From the family film collection of Kurt Jensen is this collection of scenes of the Illinois Central Railroad at the end of the steam era. The video opens at the passenger station in Carbondale, Illinois, before accompanying engineer Frank Baumgartner to work at the engine terminal in Centralia. Next, we see a 2-8-2 Mikado running light in the Carbondale yard before 2-10-2 #2710 passes light. Then it's north of Carbondale as #2702 hurries by with southbound coal and ballast loads before we pace #2710 to DeSoto. The video ends as we view several locomotives parked out of service by the Carbondale turntable. Two of the dead locomotives were seen in operation earlier in the video.
Oslo is the Tesla capital of the world. Follow Johnny on Facebook at https://goo.gl/l0x5cA for more photos and videos from his travels around the globe for Vox Borders. Instagram: https://goo.gl/CduwlO Subscribe to the Vox Borders newsletter for weekly updates: http://www.vox.com/borders-email I spent a day in Oslo before traveling to Svalbard, and noticed that there were Teslas everywhere. Upon further investigation, I learned that the Norwegian government heavily incentivizes ownership of electric cars: Tesla doesn't pay a sales tax on the models it sells, electric car owners are exempt from automobile tolls, and they can charge their vehicles for free. The catch is that Norway funds these initiatives through its sovereign wealth fund, which is almost entirely comprised of profits from Norway's oil and fossil fuel exports. Vox Borders is a new international series focused on telling the human stories that emerge from lines on the map. Johnny will travel to six border locations to produce a final set of documentaries. While he travels he'll release dispatches on YouTube and Facebook documenting his experiences.

Part of old narrow gauge Urskog - Høland railway, the "Teritten" (from latin Tertier, 3rd level, line) is run by enthusiasts & preservers every sunday in summer. Video shot 20020709. Though not an Arctic Train, Tertitten is worthy of a proper video. More video, photographs, maps at http://www.arctictrains.com.
