It's Steamy Sunday here on the Blog!  I was in Minnesota last week doing steamy things at the Ortner railroad with the Wagner locomotive a 14 inch large scale engine.  I helped operate it for the 3 days of the weekend for Kids Day and Steam school.  During some quiet time I took a few images of it in different spots around the area.  This is by the station and Coaling Tower.  The Roundhouse which is going to be expanded can be seen in the back left.


  1. Nice locomotive nice looking set up.How long is the track?

    1. We were discussing it when I was up there because someone else asked, I think it is 640 feet. We make 2 times around for a ride.
