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

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.
