Steam Train 844 in All Its Glory! From April 11, 2010 in Texas.

This steam train is huge.  When you stand next to it, you feel minuscule.  The black panels on the sides are a little different than I'm used to seeing on trains in the United States.  My source says the panels are smoke deflectors.

Here the train is roaring out of Navasota.  The amount of steam is impressive.  I really like this shot.

I think this is a different angle from the last shot, but this one captures more of the vertical steam and smoke. 

I think it is so wonderful that when steam trains have excursions like this, people of all ages come to watch and observe the awesome trains.  In a day and age when most people don't know their neighbors, its heartwarming to see the community turn out to laugh and smile together.

Liz, Steam trains are impressive giants and I'm so glad they can still be seen in action!  Do you know the WWII movie "The Train" with Burt Lancaster?

You know I have lived in this home a few years and I only talked to one of my neighbors 3 times... I have tried to make friends but didn't get anywhere....maybe we need a train in our neighborhood.

Liz - I love the old steam trains, they started disappearing when I was a kid, and now all you see are the special instances like this. Here is a link to the story of UP's Engine 844.
