I've got all kinds of steam locomotive shots, including several of 4014 which I am proud of, but this one has the most meaning to me.

This is a 2.5" scale steamer that my grandfather built just before his passing in 1993.  This photo was January of this year, the 1st time it had been back on rails at the local club since his passing (27 years).  Within a month of this shot it was cleaned up, inspected, lubed, and fired.  It ran like a Swiss watch.  As much as I love all steam locomotives, this will always be near and dear to me not just because I can run it whenever I want, but because it was made by the man that gave me my love of all things trains.

Here is one my Dad took when I was very little, he worked for the SP at that time as a signal maintainer and road around on a speeder.  I now own all of the negatives plus the original 11 X 14 B&W prints that he made.  These have always been one of my favorite locomotives.  It's been so long since he told me I don't recall which place this shot was takenBBF5FC18-6F99-41A8-8835-95094E6F4BDA
