I saw this posted on another forum, and I thought some of you might enjoy it.
"No. 6207: a study in steel"



(edit: I just noticed, I misspelled the title)

Very nice. I can't imagine the din and smoke and heat that would accompany the work they did in those shops. But, they did great work building great machines that carried people and freight over vast miles. Those trains helped to build this nation and we as a nation were connected as never before. The majesty of these trains lives on in countless little towns and villages across our nation where they are preserved and honored as timeless relics from the past.

I absolutely love the old steam trains. Here in California we have Roaring Camp which restores the trains and then takes you on a 1/2 hour to 1 hour ride through the Santa Cruz mountains to the Santa Cruz Boardwalk. Its like going back in time with the smell of the coal and sound of the whistles.

Thanks for posting the video...I've seen it before, somewhere, but enjoyed seeing it again. I have a soft spot in my heart for steam locomotives...I used to belong to a local chapter of the National Railway Historical Society, and we owned an ex-Army 2-8-0, #1702. I learned to fire that engine, and later I became an engineer on it. It was sold to a tourist line in North Carolina, and after sitting in pieces down there for many years, it's finally undergoing restoration to return it to steam. Here is a picture of it when we had it.

The main Union Pacific north/south line through Kansas City runs down the valley about 1/2 mile below our house. They occasionally run steam locomotives from their museum/roundhouse in Cheyenne, WY down the line.

U.P. engine 3985, one of the huge, articulated Challenger locomotives (2001):


U.P. engine 844 (2006):
