    The first time I ever saw a live steam engine was the 8444 at Boise, ID for the '89 Centennial celebration. Even though the extra 4 was just a temporary thing, it is how I remember her.......:) ...... but she still a beauty in any number!

    Cool set of SW1s! Those things are the real "little engines that could" - they could, they did, and kept right on going.:cool:

    Puts the battery bunny to shame.:D

    Love that paint scheme on those SW1's!:love:

    Another weird "out of place" for passenger cars was regularly seeing Pennsylvania RR passenger cars in Livingston, MT for East Coast passengers going to Yellowstone NP:confused:

    Interesting that it looks like it's in the middle of nowhere, after a photo run-by maybe?
