The Last of the Steam Locomotives is scheduled to pass through Truckee for a second time in a couple of hours. Many of us were hard at work when it passed through a few days ago. You could hear it a mile away. Our whole office shook as the train made it’s way by, stopping us all in our tracks.
Bryan Wiere anticipated the arrival of the train and was outside as it went by. Thanks Bryan for the great photos!
