  1. Thanks for sharing these 2 beautiful photos. I don't know anything about the first photo. But from the second photo, I think it was taken when you visited the Oregon Rail Heritage Center. Am I correct?

    1. The second image is a close up of the first photo SG. Both are of an antique steam tractor from the early 1910s that is still functional. This was at a tulip field near Portland :)

  3. Is that a tractor kind of vehicle transformed into an old railway engine?

    1. Your guess is partially correct Shilpa.It is a tractor but it looks like a old rail engine since it is powered by steam generated by burning wood.

    1. Very true, steam sure has tremendous amount of energy. I wonder if that is what resulted in the phrase "full steam ahead"
