That'* really cool. Unfortunately, trains are extinct here. They took the last ones off the island a long time ago.. The only ones around now are the ones in museums or are a part of heritage sites. I've always wanted to go for a ride on one

i don't think the railroad would sell either one nor do i think any of us have the cash flow to sustain the purchase of a fully restored and operational steamer from the 30' or 40'*

got 2 more videos today and a nice shot of the car while i was waiting for the second train. Tomorrow is the highlight of the videos if i can get it. they are running one of the last remaining Zephyrs left in existence. it will be screwing by at about 11am over in IL so hopefully i can get there and get set up before it arrives. uploading the videos now
