    There are several of these railways here in the West:

    Roaring Camp and Big Trees Narrow Gauge Railway (California) - http://www.roaringcamp.com/narrow.html

    Durango-Silverton Narrow Gauge RailRoad (Colorado) - http://www.durangotrain.com/

    Cumbres-Toltec Scenic Railroad (between Chama, NM and Antonito, Colorado) - http://www.cumbrestoltec.com/

    Cripple Creek and Victor Narrow Gauge Railroad (Colorado) - http://www.cripplecreekrailroad.com/

    And there is another one in California just outside the southwest entrance to Yosemite that I can't remember the name of.

    I've ridden on all of these except Cripple Creek - and they are all just great.

    LOML is a real train buff, and it's fun to see his eyes light up when he sees or rides on one of these trains. We visited the Colorado Railroad Museum in Golden, Colorado, back in October (or November), and he was in heaven for about 3 hours!! I think he was a steam-train engineer in another life!

    I visited Steamtown when it was still in Vermont. Does that count?

    Nancy, riding the Durango & Silverton is on my dream to-do list. Someday.....

    Cripple Creek is fun and gives a look at some neat history.
    There is a full sized old train in Eureka Springs and another, sorta make believe old timey ride at Silver Dollar City in Branson, MO.
    The one you showed would be loads of fun to ride.

    We have at least two steamers in Texas; in the piney woods of East Texas (Rusk) and one from Austin up into the hill country. They have been on TODO list since retirement. Ray Gerdes
