 It's Steamy Sunday here on the Blog and it is also a double digit day!  I recently watched a video on Youtube that was an interview with former Disney animator Ward Kimball who was in to trains quite a bit and even had some full size equipment.  While I was in Strasburg Pennsylvannia at the Pennsylvannia Railroad Museum, they had this locomotive that was visiting from the Smithsonian that was a locomotive that Kimball helped retore and ran on his railroad.  It was actually owned by Gerald Best.  Kind of a neat coincidence that I had just seen it in person, and then again in a video.  This was originally a sugar plantation locomotive.  They used small tank engines that were lightweight and easier to lay track for to move between fields.  It is named Olomana and was originally built in 1883 and retired in 1944.
