Weekend Steam

We get to see all kinds of wonderful sights through the magic of YouTube. Here, JaniceBraud shares a railroad treat from down in Texas: "At 2012 Railfest, Texas State Railroad 1917 Baldwin "Pershing" steam engine #300 (Consolidation class, 83 tons) pushing the much heavier (224 tons) T&P steam engine #610 (Texas class) into storage/maintenance building. This Texas and Pacific engine is the sole surviving steam engine of the super-power high capacity freight engines. It pulled the 1976 Bicentennial Freedom Train across Texas."
