Hey guys!
Well, my wife got her birthday present from me today.

She got to be the fireman for a half an hour and engineer for a half an hour on the Pere Marquette 1225 Berkshire (a.k.a. Polar Express loco).

It's funny to see some of the responses from people who are surprized by her passion and knowledge of steamers. I gave her this present because it's an opportunity to operate one of the biggest and most powerful steamers still running.
To say she had a blast would be an understatement and a half.

Here's a few pics I took

WOW! What a neat present and neat lady. As an old HOer use to say "You Foun Gold" with her. That was fantastic.
Brian,
Where are they running #1225 and for how far. Looks like a short streach of track. Is she under cover or left out in the open?
