The Steam in The Valley event has come and gone for 2021 and I was not able to get as many videos or pictures as I’d like since anxiety kept me home. However, the other weekend, after some friends took us out to dinner, we were lucky enough that the restaurant was a few minutes away from the pickup point for the last ride.
This engine is a magnificent machine. If you’ve never had a chance to experience a working steam locomotive, you’re missing out! The front wheels are taller than me! I was able to grab a short video clip as the engines moved forward to begin the boarding process.
I hope that by this time next year, my anxiety is under more control and it doesn’t stop me from doing so many of the things I enjoy such as watching and listening to this piece of machinery roll by.
