After a morning's work, and then lunch, what better way to end the day than with a train ride?
The operator is raising steam here, note the stack booster to increase the draft.
The pure joy of hearing the staccato beat of the double-acting steam cylinders' exhaust, with a backbeat of the soothing clicking of the wheels on the track joints, a pure symphony to MY ears, really makes this trip a joy. BTW, the engineer at the throttle is a retired Air Navigator from the Canadian Defense Forces, an even stranger coincidence. There aren't many of us left from the old sextant-and-chart crowd.
Enjoy Download Train Mountain 058, especially the sound track. You will need quicktime to open it.
