 It's Steamy Sunday here on the Blog!  A couple of weekends ago, I got to go do something fun.  Just outside Saint Louis to the southwest is the Wabash Frisco & Pacific Railroad.  It is one of the very few 12 inch railroads like ours that can be found to visit.  The WF&P has been in existence since 1939 and has been operating in it's current location of Glencoe, Missouri since 1961.  They have a mile of track so its a 2 mile, 40 minute ride out and back.  This is the locomotive we got to ride behind.  The WF&P has 14 locomotives in total, some being restored.  The 928 is a beautiful locomotive with a great sounding whistle.  It is a Mountain type, 4-8-2 wheel arrangement and burns oil.  It's is the only locomotive that was built by the WF&P.  I have a very short YouTube video HERE where you can see it in operation and hear the whistle.
