The Magic Of Steam Locomotives

As you can probably tell by now, I LOVE photography and one thing that is so awesome about blogging is being able to connect with other photographers.

Trains have been a big part of our life. Our first home was in a rural area, right beside the railroad tracks. For 8 years, train whistles filled our days and nights and rattled our dishes.

When Little Bit was two, his favorite thing was trains. I thought it was quite fitting, since he heard them all the time. We always had a plastic track set up on the floor.

When he was still two, we moved to our house now. Although we aren’t right next to the tracks anymore, we can still hear the train over the hills.

The railroad is really an important part of the landscape around here. All of our area small towns have tracks running through them. I love that. There’s such a history in it.

When I saw this post, honestly, I fell in love with it. Even though it is about steam engines, it hits home for me and I thought it would be a great one to share.

Thank you, Mr. Stormont for letting share your amazing photographs. What an honor!

Listening For Thunder


The magic of steam locomotives is kept alive in many places, and none are more accessible than the Nevada Northern Railway in Ely, Nevada. Your ticket to the museum includes the grounds and the shops, where you’re (mostly) free to roam, and imagine, as I did in September.

  1. I love trains too! Wished there were more steam engines!!! Have you watched the I Love Lucy episode where they were staying by a train track. It’s SO funny!! Jessica if you want to go back to the days of being by the train………come stay at Matfield Station in the Flint Hills of Kansas.
    Here is their facebook page.

    Oh no, I just called them and they said NO more rentals after December 31. How sad.
    I will have to tell “shoreacres” as I know she has stayed there.
