yes you are right we have a few of them in the UK that pull special trains and there is something about them that takes you back to your childhood when they were the norm

My good friend works for the the railroad and in two weeks, the big locomotive like this one is coming to Denver I believe! Awesome flying!!!
It is the same one, in that open beautiful scenery someone should be able to get some great footage. It was tough here most places the tracks are crowed by treelines.

Hi, old man mavic,
WP_20160630_10_50_22_Rich.jpg
you never get too old to learn something new,
I am soon 83 and have started a new career as a Drone pilot.

Old railways are something to preserve, here are some pictures of my grandchildren and "Veteran steam train".

Thanks "old man mavic", two real benefits for us a little more mature, we keep both our brain and body in good condition.

Yes thanks I love old trains. I love your use of stills in your video's. Unfortunately, the Old steam engine we use to have in the CVNP system broke was was beyond repair. They do still pull one form somewhere once a year to drive on their tracks that runs from Akron to Cleveland through the park system.
Unfortunately, due the a Park a NFZ.

For those interested, this engine, called "Big Boy", was the most powerful steam locomotive ever built anywhere. It and its siblings hauled freight across the Continental Divide between Cheyenne and Laramie, Wyoming. 🚂
