    Well behind the front lines!
    NP 0-6-0 number 924 (Rogers, 1899) steamed for the public for the first time at Snoqualmie, WA for their "railroad days" event this past Saturday.
    She needs more work and some paint, but she seemed to be steaming pretty well.
    I took these shots there:

    FYI, No photoshop was used in this photo, I didn't even crop it:

    Its good to see the old steam trains running again.

    This loco is a J-3 that belonged to NC&St.L railroad. They scrapped all of them except this one, and donated it to the city of Nashville, and has been in Centennial Park since 1952. I think late last year, it was moved and is currently being restored to operational condition. I would dearly love to see it running again, as I played on it in the park, when I was a kid!

    Ah yes, I saw that loco on our TN trip a few years ago. I'd love to see her steam again!
    FYI, Johnny Cash used that engine for one of his album covers...
