 It's Steamy Sunday here on the Blog!  I had bought a drone this past year and played with it a few times while doing some steam activities.  I would have liked to have played with it more but it was very windy all the time and even though the drone does pretty well in wind, it's not really optimum conditions to be flying an expensive piece of equipment in.  This image is a cropped view of the Wagner I get to operate in Minnesota.  I made a short video of it which shows it on a loop around it's area HERE.   The image is from the video.  This locomotive was originally operated at a park near Niagara Falls before it made it's way to the Western Minnesota Steam Thresher's Reunion.


  1. Nice little video. Good to see a REAL engine pulling the cars in a situation like that.
    You obviously feel comfortable flying the drone what looked to be close to trees.

  2. Thanks so much Jim. I picked a fairly clear spot and then just made it turn to follow. Need more practice to really maneuver in trees.
