 It's Steamy Sunday once again here on the Blog!  Once again we go back to the Railroad Museum of Pennsylvania in Strasburg.  This is Pennsylvania Railroad  locomotive 460 which was built in 1914 and retired in 1956.  This locomotive has the distinction of being the train to carry the first Theater film of Lindberg's historic flight over the Atlantic landing in Paris to an event in Washington DC.  The train reached speeds of 115 mph but was still beaten to DC by planes.  However, the film on the train was able to be processed en-route and so was the first one to be shown at the event.
