    Martin E. Hansen sent me some photos from last weekend's steam doubleheader on the McCloud featuring 2-8-2 No. 18 which is freshly restored and steamed for the first time in years, and 2-6-2 No. 25. Martin reported that six inches of new snow fell the night before, making for some excellent photo conditions. All that said, I'll see if I can post them. Had a little trouble with the files.

    OK, now that we have figured out how to post them, here is a great shot. Martin is one of the most active railfans in the northwest, and a great photographer.

    Great pictures. The snow makes them stand out. Look at the smoke. Nothing like steam locos EH!

    That last shot shows the essence of steam, and why a steam locomotive will always turn heads [​IMG]

    That last shot was what railroading was all about! You can't get the full impact without the sounds though.
