I love live steam! My brother belongs to the Timber Heritage Association.  They restore and run steam logging locomotives in Northern California.

That area is so picturesque/beautiful and with a steam train going through it must be magical.

Took some amazing train Journeys in Asia.

Bangkok - Penang (Malaysia)

Bangkok - Chiang Mai

Calcutta - Varanasi

Delhi - Calcutta.

Wonderful scenery and met some great people on the way. Most were sleepers and were comfortable and the food was tremendous. I recall one Journey from Penang to Surat Thani in Southern Thailand ( the port to the Islands of Samui and Koh Phangan.)  The scenery was breath taking as well as the food and service. I don't think we ate so well anywhere in the country.

To hell with global warming, these machines were COOL!!!!

Check this out. You can't just fire these awesome machines up by turning a key and putting them into gear. It takes HOURS to fire a steam locomotive and get it ready to roll out. This video is just an edited down taste of the process.
