Well, getting old sure helps!
I took this photo of X-45 last August.
Fort Bragg is very fortunate to have the Skunk Train, a railroad system left over from the logging days. Currently it is operated as a tourist attraction. They have Old X-45, a 1924 Baldwin 2-8-2 steam engine, a Diesel/Electric engine, a motor car and some rolling stock, Pullmans and open cars.
I love hearing the steam whistle. It is a real nostalgic event for me as I remember hearing steam powered trains when I was a kid in the 1940’s. I can tell when different engineers are operating the train just by the “English” they applied to the whistle lanyard.
