My grandfather was the engineer on a narrow gauge train in the mountains of Colorado. He grew up loving trains as great grandpa had been a railroad telegrapher.The new engines then were astonishing to the populace. A cab-over engine was new as were the different steam whistles they blew.To this day my whole family (in describing something really new or special) still quotes the grandpas: "It is cab-over-engine whistle dixie!"
