This is one of the most beautiful locomotives Iíve ever seen, the boiler cladding isnít grey.. itís polished stainless steel!




2860 at Squamish Railway Museum.  Sheís pretty much in running condition but they need more funding to get her back on excursions.  My wife of course turns to me and tells me  how she used to ride behind her for just $5 grrrrrr 😀
