    It's Christmas Eve everyone! Tonight marks the anniversary of O. Winston Link's famous recording of The Pelican. 61 years ago tonight, The Pelican roared through Rural Retreat, Virginia with N&W J #603 on the head end, and nearby church bells sounding in the distance. So if you want to spend Christmas Eve with a little extra Christmas feeling, sit back and listen to this excellent recording!

    Well, since Christmas has rolled around once again, I figured I'd just bump this thread back up to the top. Merry Christmas!

    Thanks Buynot! Merry Christmas to you too. I’ve heard of that recording before but never listened too it. Sounds beautiful and whatever locomotive that was (Sounded like a J), was perfect for the scene. God bless
