Went back out to the Niles Canyon Railway’s maintenance yard for another photo session. Last time I was there, I didn’t like most of the shots I got, so I decided to try again. I think I got a few good ones this time, including this shot.
I love riding all trains, but especially those pulled by steam locos. Just something way cool about the sights, sounds and even the smells of these trains chuffing along a scenic railway, and I hope to ride this one when it’s finished.
American Locomotive Company built this steam locomotive in 1927. It is currently undergoing a thorough restoration.
