Tony Thompson would roll over in his bed (not his grave since he is still alive and kicking!!) if he heard anyone r...

Re: North American TT locos

I mean (North) American. That's like saying "French" when you mean "German" or "European". This analogy sounds quite a bit strange. Are you sure that it fits? The term "American" describes a "resident of the American continent". Yes, it fits quite well, considering that citizens of the US generally...
