    A Perfect Winter (Steam) Day II (50 p., 1 v.)

    I agree whole-heartedly brad, absolutely great shots. I'm envious that we don't have steam running in the colder months, the colder air seems to hold the steam better and prolonging the effect. Roni does steam run all year in that area.

    Royal Hudson Steam Train remembered

    At this time the 2860 sits and waits for the West Coast Railway Association to raise $150,000 to get the boiler work done to get certified which has to be done every five years.

    5 teens caught on trestle

    These young people have learned a very realistic and severe lesson on railroad safety and the reasons you shouldn't trespass on RR property. My thoughts and prayers go out to the family of the deceased and the critically injured. I hope these teens will consider the consequences before...

    Question about tank cars

    It depends on the owner of the car, I have photos of what you are describing and these car are designated for carrying Hydrochloic Acid or any other types of acid. Nest time you see these cars look to see if the designated cargo is printed on the side of the car (usually the right side).
