Mt. Rainier Scenic Railroad Winter Steam Spectacular

Last Saturday, the Mt. Rainier Scenic Railroad hosted a “Winter Steam Spectacular” — a day of events aimed solely at railfan photographers as opposed to their general tourist excursion trains. They brought out three operating steam locomotives with three trains and did several runbys in a few locations. Here’s three photos which illustrate the beauty of steam on a crisp winter day.
