 It's Steamy Sunday here on the Blog!  Today's image once again goes to the Northern Central Railway in New Freedom Pennsylvania.  The locomotive is known as "The York" or "The William H Simpson" and is a replica 4-4-0 American type.  It was built in 2013 by the Kloke Locomotive Works in Elgin Illinois.  Kloke also built it's sister locomotive "Leviathan" which I was able to see during it's maiden outing in Owosso Michigan back in 2009.  They are both gorgeous and impressive steam locomotives.

As mentioned last week, I have some video of it that I shot by drone during my visit on July 1.  Link is HERE.


  1. The cars being pulled seem quite large compared to the locomotive.
    Nice smooth drone video BTW

    1. Possibly an optical allusion. They are not really oversized in comparison. Thanks, it's Ok till I mess up with the camera. Sigh
