Wow, it was chilly out yesterday, never made it to 40.  Today we are supposed to be warmer thank goodness.  Things to do outside.  For my image today I have one from Rollag, Minnesota at the Western Minnesota Steam Threshers Reunion from back in September.  I took this on my phone because I was done for the day and not expecting to see anything I wanted to photograph but I was able to watch them putting the 353 away for the night and putting it on the turntable.  The turntable can be operated by only 2 people and it is quite the positioning and balancing act to get the locomotive in just the right spot to do that.  These guys are very good at it.  I was able to capture a steamy moment when a bunch of steam came out one of the cylinders and drifted down into the pit.
