Steam Locomotive No. 844        page7            2011

Here is my father-in-law Jerry, which is about six feet tall giving you an idea just how large those drive wheels really are.
 

 

 

Here I am with Jerry in front of No. 844. We had a great time and would highly recommend anyone checking out any old locomotive if you ever get the chance because of all the history they have, the mechanical engineering that went into them and just how big and cool they are.
 

 

I made a short video of the train coming through Banning that you can download here (about 22 mb)
