Old 28 is an oil fired Steam engine from days long since past. But 28 got a new lease on life and some owners who give her the attention she needs. In return she makes a couple 60 mile trips a week carrying paying passengers wanting to have a 'railroad' experience. This is the Texas State RR running out of Palestine. TX. We took this ride last Friday hoping to catch all the dogwoods n bloom. We were a bit early...oh well!

Her are some pics of her, her bits and pieces, her engineer, and her travels.

Beautiful set, and a nice looking engine. Isn't it a "Consolidation" (2-8-0)?
