Full Steam Ahead

train_3 Full Steam Ahead
Once or twice every year you can travel between Stockholm and Nynäshamn with one of the steam trains from the Nynäshamn Railway Museum. This locomotive was in traffic between 1907 and 1966. If you missed the chance today you can try again tomorrow.

The run an old steam train from Williams, Arizona to the Grand Canyon every day. The powering up of the engine is indeed an impressive collection of sights and smells.

You just can't beat a steam train - love the top shot.

There is nothing like the sights and sounds of a steam engine.

Ånglok! Fascinerande och häftigt fångat bakom all rök och ånga. Jag känner en barnslig förtjusning inför ånglok även om jag är den första att erkänna att jag är tämligen okunnig i ämnet.

I love locomotives! Your photos are perfect. And I agree about taking the chance to get to ride on the train being pulled by one of them. It is a memorable event!

I wasn't even finished with breakfast when the train arrived to the station this morning Krille.

That first photo is great. It should be the cover for a book about trains.
