When my son was small, we tried to visit as many train museums and attractions as we could find ... Thanks for the memories!


Trains and their history are certainly fascinating. I can understand kids' interest in them.
We rode on one of the old steam engine trains out of Durango, Colorado a few years ago to an old mining community. Seeing this locomotive in northern Michigan reminded me of that trip!


Reading your article and watching a few of the clips from YouTude(thanks for including the video)makes me think of how unique locomotives were in their design and manufacture. Kind of like the development of classic cars. Each has an eye-appeal that stirs great feelings.


Jimmy-I found scads of information about locomotives, and Shays in particular, on the Web. They sure have a lot of fans online!
I use video fairly sparingly here, but this story seemed to scream for a little movement and the sound of whistles and clanging bells.
