Default Sssssteam Heat

Apropos of absolutely nothing, I love steam locos! Those of us (still around) who were fortunate enough to have experienced them will swear there's nothing like 'em. Magnificent beasts.

Excellent stuff there, Stick!
The audio just can't convey that feeling of raw power when you're near by it.

Hi Dan

Seeing that you'll probably consider the big express engines we have over here (in our terms) to be the sub-compacts of the steam engine world (in your terms)

Regards

Phil

What memories this stirred up! I grew up along the tracks and clearly remember the sounds and smells of these old Giants. I also remember the troop trains of World War 2, the hobos thar must have had their secret mark on our house for a handout (Mom never turned them away.) and I have a picture of holding my oldest son as the last one made its final trip acrossed Missouri. Wonder memories great times.

I remember them taking off loaded at about -20 f . What a bunch of steam and the drive wheels slipping on the piston stroke. Awesome then-awesome now! Went for a ride on one about 3 years ago in Colorado. Brought back memories.
