Love this! I can almost hear it just by seeing the photo!

Indrani 10/3/12, 12:21 AM  

A rare sight these days.
Great capture.

Ismail N 10/3/12, 3:45 AM  

Yup, we hardly see this these days. A classic...

Great capture!

I played too. Mine are here and here.

You don't see these too often (outside of amusement parks, that is.) Would love to see the whole engine - maybe a future WW post?

Happy WW!

That looks like a blast from the past!

Sort of looks like the Hogwarts Express at Universal!

I love old trains...you can just hear that whistle, can't you?

Lucy 10/3/12, 8:04 AM  

Ah, my daughter loved trains as a kid and what a great shot of an old classic one :)

Daryl 10/3/12, 8:04 AM

Carol @ Always Thyme to Cook 10/3/12, 8:19 AM  

A classic! Great shot. I can just feel the power of that train from your shot.

Secret Mom Thoughts 10/3/12, 8:25 AM  

I love trains. Great shot.

Sivinden 10/3/12, 9:19 AM  

That's a great find! I can hear the whistle blow;)

I like the angle here -- the mechanical bits with their intriguing shapes against the sky. Showing sky and no tracks makes it feel dream-like. This evokes great memories of riding old trains with our children.

Oh man-o-man ... I love trains! Please tell me that it's all set to take us to Happydale!

carol 10/3/12, 10:44 AM  

Love it! So much detail.

I imagine it could give a variety of signals with two whistles and a bell. So cool to get such a well preserved glimpse of the past.

I was born to a railroad family in a railroad town in Illinois. This reminds me we should get ourselves down to Steamtown National Park in Scranton again. Want to see the progress they've made on the locomotives they were working on the last time we were there.

Annmarie Pipa 10/3/12, 11:13 AM  

a fun and interesting picture!

commonweeder 10/3/12, 11:16 AM  

Great photo. I want more trains working in this country!

Zibilee 10/3/12, 11:17 AM  

Oh, my nephew would love this photo! He is seriously into anything that has to do with trains. Very cool photo today!

catsynth 10/3/12, 11:47 AM  

These are fantastic pieces of machinery, aren't they :)

I like old trains too!. I grew up in the Black Hills of SD. There is an 1880 Train in Hill City SD that is a blast to ride.

My WW is HERE

Belle Wong 10/3/12, 5:50 PM  

My son would love this picture! He has loved steam engines ever since he was 2.

Leanne 10/4/12, 1:44 AM  

Now that's art!
Nice to meet you through WW.
Thanks for visiting my joint.
