    Hi everyone, as a Railfan, and a Model train collector, I post this here for all to see and remember the steamers of the day, and take a look at some of the remaining steam loco’s in service today. I look at the steamers in the museum, and read there history and detail. But that means nothing when I can see them in action for myself. I think of the days when my great grand father took on the days as a mechanic for NYC to keep the steamers running for a while longer. I miss those NYC steamers and those SAL steam engines and nothing can ever be changed. So I found these clips. There not mine but they sure do blow me away every time I watch em’.:thumb: :D

    UP 3985

    UP 844

    SP 4449

    Grand Canyon 29 and 3960

    I hope everyone enjoys these clips.:D If you want to see more just let me know.
    Remember the steam engine’s of the past and thank god that there are survivors running.

    I like the old diesel better. I do railfanning and thats all I see are the new diesel's. They get pretty boring after a while. Except for some occasions.
