Historic locomotive exhibition ahead - beware of steam clouds[^]

50+ years ago, we were running like crazy to get to see a real steam locomotive, close up! The kind of locomotives they used when grandpa was a boy! ... I think I have seen a real steam loc about five times in my life. Today, kids don't even know Ivor the Engine or Thomas the Tank Engine. The (very) few who do, make no associations to modern railroads - Ivor and Thomas are simply strange looking animated characters.

You can see steam locomotives one place: On traffic signs. Makes me think of that mother telling about when she said to her son, pointing at the button on the screen with a floppy icon: I bet you don't even know what that is! And the son answered: Of course I do! It is a save button!
