So today is going to be an almost literal Steamy Sunday with the bit of rain we got producing high humidity and the 90 degree heat. Yuck.
I'm taking a break today from the South Dakota train and going back to Steamfest 2009 in Michigan where I got to see several very cool locomotives. One of them was this one, a Berkshire type housed in Fort Wayne, Indiana, Nickel Plate 765. It was putting out some steam as it was being turned on the Wye to be at the head end of it's excursion train on the way back to Owosso. We had ridden the daylight the day before but chased this one for photos the next day. It's a quite beautifully restored locomotive.
