The Orlando and Winter Park Railroad was named the DINKY by Rollins students because "that's just what it was. Even the rails... were dinky. Thought they'd never hold to the ground." The students also named the two engines the "Tea Pot" and the "Coffee Pot."
"The roadbed was imperfect, the rails were frayed and frazzled, and the transportational equipment had reached the final stage of senescence... The distance between Orlando and Winter Park, although short in optical measurment, was interminable when measured in terms of temporal span, for this traid could travel (when on the track) at a speed somewhat less than that of a decrepit nag, and the trip was seldom made without at least one abrupt departure from the worn and attenuated rails.
"Waiting for the arrival of this puffing antediluvian, one heard its approach by listening for shrill creaks and grindings two or three miles away and once aboard was prepared to leap into action at a moments notice to help push and pry the recalcitrant wheels of engine, coach, or freight car back upon their proper support. Pulled by its wood burning locomotive, with formidable smoke stack resembling an enormous hotel lobby spitton coated with shoe blacking, this paleotechnic monstrosity groaned and snorted back and forth, days without end."
