Re: Steamtown's Big Boy Is Back On Display

It really needed that attention, it was looking pretty shabby. Good work, Steamtown.

Re: Canandian Pacific 2816

I had the pleasure of enjoying 2816 back in Minnesota in 2004. 261 was out, and 2816 arrived with Doyle McCormack running her. Lots of fun riding behind them and chasing them.

Tom, thanks for posting those. Kevin did a great job covering it. Along with the video you posted, looks like my kind of steam trip.

Re: WW&F video on Utube

Thanks for a very entertaining video, lots of steam from that little locomotive, pretty fall colors, nice reflection shot. The word "timeless" gets over used, but I think it would apply here at least to when that truck was built. Loved it.

Almost 27 years ago, railfanning

It has been pretty quiet not only here but seemingly everywhere while people try to deal with the covid19. Now our President has tested positive. With all this time to look at stuff we did in the past, I found some of our pics from the New River Train back in October 1993. It was advertised as "...

Re: "Steamtown’s Grand Opening 25 Years Later"

Tony, the experience of the Grand Opening was great. A few problems with which steam engine would lead each excursion were quickly resolved and it was non stop steam. I thoroughly enjoyed it.

Re: "Steamtown’s Grand Opening 25 Years Later"

Tony, I can't speak for what it is like today as the only time I attended was at the Grand Opening 25 years ago. I saw something on the net but don't remember where, showing a lot of freight cars in the turntable area and as far as I know none of the steamers are operational except for the switch en...

Re: "Steamtown’s Grand Opening 25 Years Later"

That was a colossal event for those of us who love steam. My wife and I attended and got our first ride behind the 261. More would occur later. Also rode behind the Canadian locomotives. I have been blessed by being able to attend some of these great steam happenings, including this one and many oth...

Re: March 24, 2002

You are bringing back great memories, John. I sure remember the US flags being flown on that return trip. We must have been fairly close together for the Willow Creek runby, as my photos resemble yours. Years later I found the place to get "the" shot with the whole trestle and train, but '...

Re: Amtrak Continues To Play CEO Musical Chairs

Mark, do you think we could convince Steve, Doyle and other steam folks to petition the new guy to reinstate the Amtrak insurance for mainline steam coverage?
