Much love for the great comments. : ) Thank you. @meadowanne - I love the old days. : ) I used to enjoy visiting the Klickitat Tavern and playing pool with my native brethren back in the old days. : )

The old steam engines were truly a beautiful sight to behold.

Fabulous catch on getting it just as it goes by. Loved the one taken at The Dalles, too. I'm a big old locomotive fan, grew up in Klickitat, WA, where we had two Shays bringing logs down out of the woods, and my uncle was the fireman on them.
