While I am not all that much of a steam fan as such, I certainly do enjoy chasing and/or riding steam powered trains. Here are some slides of steamers from the past few decades!

|Here is the BCR's Royal Hudson Southbound at Porteau BC on a nice early fall day in 1995.||No. 18 southbound at Willaha Oct. 4, 1997 during the Railfan Weekend. The next photo to the right is the 18 in the scrap line.||Here is the #18 parked in the scrap line in Marquette MI in November of 1969. One would not have thought she'd ever run again.||Here is a rare doubleheaded train on the GCR north of Williams AZ Aug 25, 1990.||The Grand Canyon Ry's #29 is northbound north of Williams AZ July 29, 1990. See the photo to the right of the 29 taken years ago!||Here is the LS&I #29 (now on the Grand Canyon Ry) given up for scrap in November 1969 in Marquette, MI.||The unique narrow gauge rotary snowplow on the Cumbres & Toltec Scenic RR is well known. Here it works hard on a brilliant May 4, 1997.|
|The Nevada Northern really does a fine job for the Railfan Weekends. This was taken Oct. 1995.||Early on a Sunday morning the NN crews are doing some runbys in the Ely yard. Nov. 1997.||Here is Engine #40 doing a runby as the fog begins to burn off. Nov. 1997.||A freight train is headed up the hill from Ely - note the old car pacing the train! Nov. 1997.||This is the Durango & Silverton running north from Durango in July of 1987.||The Grand Canyon Ry also does a fine job for their Railfan weekend. Here 4960 smokes it up just south of the Grand Canyon. Oct. 1997.||The regular passenger train is almost back to Williams on a great Oct 1997 evening.|
