:iconrudeboyskunkplz::iconrudeboyskunkplz2::iconrudeboyskunkplz3: on  Steam Trains. It's wonderful you enjoy the history of these old iron work-horses. When I was a child, I used to ride my bike to the railroad tracks to watch the trains go by and to watch them couple and de-couple the box cars.

:icontff1::icontff2::icontff3:  on  Incongruent. I made this from two separate photographs that I took.  In the first photo, the woman was sitting next to a little girl.  I removed the girl and shortened the bench.  In the second photo, there was the train, but no woman. I love the fact she is dressed in 1880's costume while using a cell phone.

:iconthxfav1::iconthxfav2::iconthxfav3::iconthxfav4: on Train and Trestles. As a child, I remember riding my bike to the local railroad tracks to view the daily ritual where rail cars were coupled and decoupled in order to drop off and pick up cargo at the nearby factory where my father used to work.  I also fondly remember walking with my mother down the tracks as she delivered a hot lunch to my father at that factory.  She would pack him fresh burritos made from hand-made flour tortillas. Trains have a sweet memory for me.

That's nice. I used to ride one of these things in the mountains.

You are very fortunate.   I rode a steam train in Costa Rica through the jungle from the Pacific to the Atlantic.

The one on the middle is the Atlantic. The left is a Shay. Not sure about the one on the right.

The one on the right either is a Prairie or a consolation from the size and what can be seen of the drivers

I like steam trains the best,but you don't see them a lot.
AndySerrano's avatar
Right. You have to research where to find the steam trains and then go vast distances to find them. You might like this [link] photo I took. Thanks for the fave.

there used to be one out of service steam train near the railroad station where I live but due to the extra usage of the railroad it was on, it became a danger to the trains that uses that track so the city move it,where? I forgot...

You might find this interesting. I just saw the movie, "Atlas Shrugged, Part 2" (By the way, I don't agree with the personal philosophy of the author.) There was a scene where a train's engine gave out. A politician on the train demanded another engine be found to pull the train. A steam engine was found nearby and pulled it. It entered a tunnel and people began choking on the fumes. However, it collided head-on with a munitions train in the tunnel.

It only lasted a couple of weeks at the theaters. You'll have to find it on disk.

They're are train tracks not too far from my house, but I don't usually see trains use it.
But I really liked it when a train went by. :)

If you live close to the tracks, like I did growing up and the train comes frequently, it can sometimes wake you up.
