    Uncle was a engineer for the mighty Southern Pacific. Got some rides as a kid.

    Here's more steam, this time from Colorado, the Durango & Silverton Mine Train...



    I rode this train in the 70's.

    I love the sounds of steam train engines.

    A real piece of America history is alive and well.
    Kudos to the Union Pacific for investing 1,000痴 of man hours to bring this wonderful piece of our countries transportation history and culture back to operational status.
    These trials were conducted a few days ago.

    U-Pac have several that they are currently restoring. This one was sitting in a LA park somewhere for a few years and they brought her home to do a total, from the ground up, restoration. Other locomotives are currently in their WY shops being rebuilt to run. Only changes I've heard they are making are turning them from coal to oil burning. But, not 100 percent sure on that.
    I'm just curious how U-Pac plans on using these iconic machines. I assume excursion runs across the country. Whatever the case is, just glad to see them back on the rails again.

    Oh, there is another video of shop guys, firing up this unit and getting the steam whistle in operation. It was almost like watching this breathing, living machine get her voice back. Took a few minutes, but once the pipes were cleaned, she was screaming. Have to believe that most people living within 10 miles of the Cheyenne shop, heard it.

    My mothers father worked for the Pennsylvania railroad 1920s-50s. He was on the wreck/maintance crew. My mom said he was never home.
    EVH 1979: Well, actually it's not much of a vacation, because we run everything ourselves. We design our own album cover, we have to be in the office every day to sign checks - the whole corporation revolves around us. Nothing can be done without our approval. We even have photo approval.

    my first train set (the larger scale) was a steam engine, but my first HO was a diesel and I've always been partial since. I've been known to take parts of vacations to chase trains!
