National Train Day

Today is National Train Day.  There are at least two events in my local area commemorating National Train Day.

It is a rainy and chilly day, a day that I didn’t feel like spending too much time in the outdoors.  My husband and I did drive to Sam’s Club in Jamestown, NY this morning.  We usually go shopping at Sam’s Club once a month.  We stopped in Falconer, NY on our way home.  A photographer friend shared the fact that the locomotive that will steam into Jamestown at noon today prepares for its journey in Falconer.  Hence, the reason for our stop in Falconer.  I am happy that we made the stop.

American Viscose Company of Roanoke VA had Locomotive #6 built in 1925 by Baldwin Locomotive Works Philadelphia, PA. It was scrapped in the early 1960s to Gem City Iron & Metal Company of Pulaski, VA. Number 6 was purchased by Scott Symans of Dunkirk NY in 2004 and completely restored to operating condition between 2004 and 2007.

The following video, captured by a drone, shows Viscose Company #6 steaming into the Jamestown Railroad Station at last year’s National Train Day event.

    Great post! These old steam trains are things of beauty. I feel quite ancient as I remember them running regularly on the train tracks nearby our home, before they became antiques.

    Hello Linda, the old steam engines are special. It is neat to see some still in use too. Great post and photos. Happy Sunday, enjoy your new week!
