All You Want Is Here

#steamysunday

Hi everyone, it’s #steamysunday  where co-curator +Paul Pavlinovich and I hope you will share some steamy shots!  We like ANYTHING steamy, not just trains, it can be steam off your coffee or tea or mist in the mountains.  Please tag us and the theme if you play so we can find and enjoy them.  Let’s see some steamy shots!


So on our trip to #southdakota  we went to the 1880s Train which the hubster had fun saying nothing about it was 1880s.

 The station is original and from 1889 so barely made it.  It was a nice railroad though they were a bit stringent in not allowing you to move while the train was moving.  I guess it’s good for some people who are not used to it but it was one of the smoothest rides I have been on.  The locomotive they use most is this one that I had never seen before

It’s an articulated Mallet Tank engine built by Baldwin in 1928.  It can pull the most cars so they use it in their busy season.  It is oil fired, they stopped using coal in the 1930s due to traveling through the Black Hills Forest.  Hope you enjoy the image and have a great day!

This is a shot of one of the Cumbres & Toltec steam locomotives at their old coaling tower in Chama, New Mexico.  I have heard that this tower was since restored after I took this shot.  It was neat to see an old structure like this in use.  Hope you enjoy the image and have a great day!
