    She's on static display in one of our town parks.
    4-8-4 Engine #5614

    It's taken me forever to getting pics of her just because I never have a camera handy when I happen to be in that neighborhood. I finally used my cell phone today and got some good shots of her.

    Great photo's cannonball. It's nice to see that your local folks care enough to put a roof over the locomotive. Too many times they are left to rust and rot in the weather.

    It does a pretty good job close up.
    I've got some fantasic shots of my daughter with it.

    Well, I don't know how well it's really protected from the elements with just a roof. I think they do pretty good upkeep on her though. There's a couple of spots that look like she might be about due for repainting.
