A few pictures of a locomotive I miss, and hope to see steam again someday.

These were all taken sometime the summer of 1983, I think. I spent a few contemplative hours in the cab bringing her up to steam, just listening to the rain pour down and the sounds of the locomotive.

You guys 'spose there's a chance of it running again?

Cheers,Dave

Here is their website: http://www.lakewhatcomrailway.com/

It says they currently use a diesel "for political reasons", whatever that means!

Anyone know?

More cheers, Barry

when I talked to the owner he was talking about the neighbours complaining about the smoke being toxic. And he also said that it needed recertification. Also he told me they run it every year for the Christmas train to steam heat the cars at a very low psi.
