    Mystery of the Vanishing caught my attention. What struck me as odd was the fact that a steam engine had disappeared from either Boston North Station or Boston South Station in 1960. Also, the naming of individual steam engines had stopped sometime before the beginning of the twentieth century.



    I did a little research in magazines like Classic Trains and a few websites and found out that the three major railroads into Boston had dieselized by 1956. The Boston & Albany had dieselized by 1951, the New Haven by 1956, and the Boston & Maine by 1956. Therefore, the steam engine shown would have vanished several years before the writer claimed it had. However, it would have vanished because diesels were far more efficient.



    Names for locomotives, like Eloise, had stopped sometime before the turn of the 20th century. Some famous named locomotives were: The General and Texas of the A&WRR (Civil War), the Socrates (Ashtabula Disaster), and the Jupiter (Golden Spike ceremony).



    The program as a whole is kind of cute, but like a lot of cartoons not much thought is put into historical details.
