Today's image is a closer up view of Norfolk and Western locomotive 475 4-8-0 Mastadon waiting at Picnic grove on the Strasburg Railway.  It was running alternately with N&W 611 the day that I was there and it's passenger cars were very full because everyone, like me, that day wanted to be riding behind 611.  I didn't know until after how rare 475 was as well.


  1. A great addition to Steamy Sunday. I'll have to look up some information on 475. I honestly don't know much about it.

    1. Thanks a lot Tom. I didn't either, even when I saw it. Was glad I took good photos of it when I got back and looked it up and saw how it was a rare one too.
