Pint sized trains.

This photograph was taken in August of 1984, at the Hesston Steam Museum located in Hesston Indianna near the Michigan State Line. This is the 7 inch guage live steam miniature railroad that operates at the museum. This is a working model of a Southern Railway (USA) P S -4 Pacific type passenger locomotive that the southern had used in the south during the steam era. This locomotive runs on coal and water just as a regulair full sized steam locomotive does. The engineer had just stepped off to grab a cold drink after his previous run. I watched the children just in case, but it wasn't necessary as they were exceptionally well behaved . Quiete an interesting size comparison in this photo.
