Yesterday, while coming back from davidlevine's Oregon coast writing retreat in Rockaway Beach, OR, we passed a steam engine, an 0-4-4-0 logging locomotive, to be specific. The Genre car tends to want to pull over in such situations, so I let the vehicle have its head. calendula_witch and zellandyne stayed in the vehicle and chatted while I walked around the steaming hunk of iron and steel.

It was stopped in Rockaway Beach at the far end of an excursion run from Tillamook. The fireman was wandering around checking the valves and whatnot, while the locomotive belched steam and burbled like a baleen whale with terminal indigestion.

Photos, as may be expected, were taken:

Um, 0-2-2-0? Really? Surely 0-4-4-0?
