Yikes, it's going to be a cold one today, only a high of 14F or -10C, ICK.   I'm thinking of much warmer days in September up in Minnesota at the Western Minnesota Steam Thresher's Reunion.  This is the Wagner locomotive and train that I get to help operate for 3 hours a day during the show.  It was built in the late 40s and originally operated out in New York at a park by Niagara Falls.  In this shot is Becky, and we used to have an all female crew until this year when we let a guy be on it with us.  :-)  Five more months and I will be there again for Steam School.  Seems a long time away in weather like this.
