Old fashioned steam engine trains are not much in use except for tourist rides. We were in Essex, Connecticut a few years back. Our group signed on to take a steam engine ride. I don’t know why. We all agreed to take a step back in time and ride an old steam engine train. It was a very civilized way to go. But then again we were going about 10-15 mph. Colorful, scenic, and fun, but, it was going to take a long time to go from one place to another.
