The Chicago Burlington & Quincy and later the Burlington Northern and Burlington Northern Santa Fe railroads use the term "Dinky" to refer to a commuter passenger train. The Chicago & North Western and later the Union Pacific railroads use the term "Scoot" to refer to a commuter passenger train.
Harold Kept many of his photos on sites which no longer exist.
