I noticed a distinct lack of trains on this thread, so inspiration struck. Here is a short video of a revenue generating rail line clearing snow from the right of way so a photo excursion can be run later in the day.

Durango and Silverton transitioned from hauling silver ore to hauling tourists and never stopped using steam power, making it a piece of living history which is deeply ingrained into the psyche of Americana.

I'm gauging interest (pardon the pun) to see if I should post some more of my favorite videos of steam locomotives.

Just watching the train is quite relaxing.

I found the video to be very relaxing as well. The relatively slow speed that narrow gauge requires, the thick layer of snow, and the excellent video evoke memories of being out walking after a recent snowfall.

Ever been to Colorado? There's abandon mines everywhere, 1800 relics are commonplace, and the air is thin! On I-70 going into the mountains from Denver is the Sculpture House featured in the 1973 classic Sleeper with Woody Allen.
