AMERICAN QUEEN TO PLY THE MISSISSIPPI RIVER AGAIN

So, it's not a steam locomotive, but it is a steam powered boat. The biggest sternwheeler to ply the Mississippi River, from what I've read.
It's been going through a couple months of re-commissioning down in Louisiana. Here's a link, and once you're on the site, you can page back a ways and find more information on American Queen.
