New Hope Ivyland Steam Engine 2007

Posted by Laurie (New Jersey, United States) on 3 December 2007 in Transportation and Portfolio.

Some of my favorite subjects are trains. I particularly love the old Steam Engines like this one. I just love the nostalgia, the sound of them, and the power they evoke.

I told Mark that I want to drive it. Probably never going to happen since you need a boiler operator's license to run it. Well maybe I can get a ride in the cab some day.

This was shot on Saturday in New Hope PA. It was a very cccccold day which helps to really accentuate the steam from the train.

We had our first snowfall on Sunday, not much, but enough to make it feel like winter has come. It's supposed to change to rain and all wash away by Monday morning. I posted a photo of the snow here if you'd like to have a peek.

Don't forget to visit "Tis' The Season" Justin Gaynor's fun Holiday Photoblog. It's a collaborative photoblog featuring seasonal Holiday photos from Thanksgiving through New Years from some very fine photographers many of whom you know and if you don't you will. I promise it will be worth the visit. So please go check it out.
