Trains and Snow

Some more interesting pictures from 2005 which I didn’t post at the time. The weekend of 12/17, the Oregon Rail Heritage Foundation gave rides on trains pulled by the SP 4449 steam locomotives along the track that goes by Oaks Park across the pond from my place.

I was hoping to take a ride but I had a cold. Instead, I got to hear it blow its whistle and watch the train go by puffing a white cloud. You can see in the photo that half of the Oaks Bottom pond is frozen. That Sunday, it snowed an inch of snow; the second picture has the train going through while it is snowing. I don’t know why I didn’t take a picture of the snow outside.
