 It's an interesting date day today.  😁  It's also Steamy Sunday here on the Blog!  Today's image is of the full size locomotive that I am able to work on during the show in Minnesota over the Labor Day weekend.  This is ex Soo Line switch engine 353 which is now 102 years old.  It's great that it is still in operation and it's quite fun to fire.  It is a coal fired engine.


  1. Looks like quite the lady (if steam locomotives are referred to as ladies)

    1. Females yes. Never sure why things like this and cars and such are referred to that way. I should Google it I guess. LOL
