We all know what our car or truck sounds like when idling, but, didja’ ever hear a steam engine idle ?


There is something that just says immense power is on tap, even at idle. Here is a look and listen at the Cumbres and Toltec #487 idling during the lunch stop at the 1800’s era Osier Station.

Cumbres & Toltec #487 @ Ossier

It is a rainy day and the cinder smoke drifts out across the valley at Osier Pass. A different look.
