Welcome to Steamy Sunday on the Blog and another photo from the National Museum of Transportation in Kirkwood, Missouri just outside of St. Louis. This is Y6 Class Norfolk & Western 2156 a 2-8-8-2 Mallet locomotive. The sign on it was welcoming it back to the museum. It had returned on June 3 after a 5 year stay at the Virginia Museum of Transportation to help welcome N&W 611 back to steam. It is a huge locomotive and was cool to see. It was raining while I took this shot from under a tree. The locomotive is not operational and was towed back and forth.
