Greetings! It is once again Wednesday, and another day to celebrate real railroading. Life-size and sometimes operating. I have no recent photos of steam in operation, but will be looking out for it as the country is still in phases of re-opening. Here are two steam locomotives that have not run in over 50 years. Above is Reading Company no. 2124, sitting on display at the Steamtown National Historic Site.
Also on display at Steamtown is this Berlin Mills (New Hampshire) Paper Co. no. 7. Seven is a hefty 2-4-2T which carries her own coal and water on her car-body. She was built in 1911, and greets visitors at the Steamtown traffic circle.
If you have any recent photos or videos of trains on the line, please add them here. I know that travel options for many of us are limited this year, but you might encounter a train on the rails just by taking your normal drives around town. Whatever you capture, we would like to see.
