    Steam Trains?

    If you like steam trains, you may find the New Hope & Ivyland Railroad interesting. I recently took a ride on this train, sitting in the cab of locomotive No. 40. It's easy to forget what hard work it was keeping a steam engine operating: shoveling coal, filling the boiler, tending the grates. The good old days definitely weren't "light duty." Anyway, here's the video I made showing this piece of living history.

    Here's an update with another video of locomotive No. 40 being readied for a day on the rails. It's a lot of work, but a great subject for this black and white video:
