I went to the station to see the steamer that was there this weekend. Engine # 3751, the oldest 4-8-4 "Northern" type steam loco around, so our paper said. Built in 1927 and rebuilt in 1941 with 80" wheels that allowed it to reach speeds of 90 mph. The loco is beautiful, and those wheels fascinated me. Here are are some not so great pics.

Thanks for sharing the great train pics. Check out the size of the cotter pin in pic #11 ... I'll bet that's 10" or 12" big!

Beautiful wood model, too ... great seeing such clever all-custom work.
