For Steam Men

Joe Biden wishes he were here
How do you plan to celebrate National Train Day? Don't tell me you didn't remember May 12th is National Train Day? Well, whatever you do, it probably won't be on the Gniezno Narrow Gauge Railroad in western Poland. This photo from a post by John Savery on the excellent Behind the Water Tower Polish rail blog describes a charter run on the last still operational section of the enormous Kujaway Narrow Gauge Railroad. Caps off to John for taking the run twice on one day: once as a passenger and once chasing it by car to take photos like this one. Of course, it probably wasn't that hard to keep pace with the Ptx48-1919 steam locomotive since its speed tops out at about 20 m.p.h. Sounds like a great way to spend an afternoon.
