Pic Today 2/25/11









BIG WHEELS
KEEP ON TURNING

Every part of these grand steam locomotives
is built for power and majesty . . .

great design and function
with no detail small or frail.
Giant wheels and pistons that once pulled heavy freight
today deliver only stationary beauty,
from boiler and pumps
to valves and pipes that slowly rust shut.

Black beauty is an iron horse!


(Final group of train photos, tomorrow.)

  4. Third picture is awesome :)
    Traveling by train is the best.. there's some magic in those trips that cars, planes or bicycles don't have..
    Here in my city we don't have much trains.. there's only one that only has two departure days to Buenos Aires.. what a pity =/

    Kisses for u :)
