This is an image of the locomotive 353, the one I get to help fire on, as it passes by the roundhouse on it's run around the grounds of the Western Minnesota Steam thresher's Reunion.  In through the door you can see the Porter engine which is a tank style engine meaning it carries it's extra water over the boiler and not in a tender on the rear.  I have fired on this locomotive as well but it currently needs some serious repairs which I hope it will receive some day and be back in operation.  The cab is a bit small and cramped as compared to the 353 but it is still a fun engine to fire.
