Checking it out...

At the stop in Silverton, Colorado, no real station, it stops in one of the streets.

Looks like a biggie, Frank, and you have a great shot of it.
Frank L Croston.: Might be narrow gauge, Ray, but but certainly looked big to me. Thanks very much.

It's the nearest thing we can build to something that is really alive
Frank L Croston.: It does seem that way, Chris, wonderful machines.
That is some beast for a narrow gauge railway!
Frank L Croston.: It's not what we normally associate with narrow gauge eh, Bill?
very cool presented
Frank L Croston.: Thanks, Chantal.

Ooodles of atmosphere in this. When you see the size of the engineer, you realise just how big these beauties are.
Frank L Croston.: Thanks, Alan, they really are a size, I think seeing them from ground level makes a difference too.
There's so much tackle bolted on to American locos isn't there whereas we keep it all covered up. Great shot once again Frank.
Frank L Croston.: There seems to be, Brian, a lot less tidy than ours, but I do like them all the same.
It's huge isn't it. Got to be American
Frank L Croston.: Nothing by halves here, Janet...smile
Very cool! I love that you kept it in color!
Frank L Croston.: Thanks, Elizabeth, it does look better.
Hi Frank... 482 wasn't restored like the trains in England with new paint and polished brass...
but i am sure that this old locomotive has puts out about twice the power... like the engines that ran through the Canadian Rockies... good shot...petersmile
Frank L Croston.: They certainly haven't done anything cosmetically, Peter, but otherwise they are great old engines, thanks.
