Each year, Roots of Motive Power organizes a Christmas train event in conjunction with the Mendocino County Museum. The weather cooperated with a very cold, but clear afternoon, which really shows off the steam. This big Heisler locomotive traveled around the loop track all afternoon, with pauses for water refills. I'm lucky to be in a town where upclose and personal views of such antique machinery in action is so freely available.
As always, I'll be posting more from this event here soon.
