Steam Engine #3 has returned to the Prairie Dog Central Railway! This rail ride takes you from Winnipeg to Grosse Isle, Manitoba, Canada for a 2 1/2 hour excursion. Steam Engine #3 is one of the oldest operating steam locomotives in North America. You can enjoy an unforgettable experience while your 1900-vintage passenger coach is pulled across the Prairie landscape and the locomotive whistles its way along the tracks! When my husband was still working for the Canadian National Railway, he worked on the overhaul of this old engine :-)) Matter of fact, he was offered a job with the Prairie Dog Central Railway yesterday as we watched the old steamer start up and return it’s journey to Winnipeg from Grosse Isle.

    Those of us of a “certain age” look back nostalgically at the steam engines with treasured memories, the sight, the sound, the smell…
    A lovely old engine, great shot

  • thank you very much Jes, yes I was intrigued by the old engine on Sunday and had to get photos of her, when I arrived in Nova Scotia, Canada for the first time as a baby I traveled to Manitoba with one just like this :-))
