Steam Engine Train

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.

  1. Back in the day, all people had was time. Travel was not interrupted by cell phones announcing another comment on Facebook or a robo call from some wannabe politician’s Pac. No iPads, iPhones, iPods or laptops. The journey was an adventure to be enjoyed.
    Several years ago we took a steam engine from Durango to Silverton, CO. It was starting to sleet and snow – brrrr.
