Steamers and Vintage Diesels (Pic Heavy )

Just came back from a special three day photo event in the mountains of Cass , West Virginia . All 7 of there steam Locomotives are restored to the 200 psi operating specs . No shortcuts here . All are all wheel drive Sheas with the exception of number six which is a Heisler and was just recently put back into service after a complete rebuild . It is a very rare Locomotive . It is ninety tons and the rest of the Sheas are either ninty tons and one is one hundred and ten . These are all around one hundred years old and were used in the Mountains of Cass to haul logs to the sawmill . Imagine these oldtimers hauling logs on a twelve percent grade ! Sure have more character than modern day diesels ! Diesels here of course are vintage !

Nice.
Was thinking of heading down to SnowShoe for the long weekend. Staying home instead. Need to get back down there. Nice area.

Night shots at Green Bank would be cool too, if possible.
