Cuyahoga Valley Scenic Railroad Steam

Steam in the Valley is the theme for this month's celebration of Cuyahoga Valley Scenic Railroad's 40 years of service. While we weren't able to participate in the special 40th anniversary events this past weekend, we grabbed the camera for the evening run of the special visiting steam engine and caught it in pictures as it passed by the Boston Mills station.

The steam engine will be visiting the area for the month of September and all sorts of special runs are planned. Check out the CVSR site for excursions and prices. Even if you don't have a chance to ride the rails behind the steam engine, take time to find a spot along the line and watch and listen to it as it goes by. It's pretty exciting even if you are not a train enthusiast.

The steam engine is officially the CP 1293 -- Ex Canadian Pacific 4-6-2 No. 1293 brought to the Valley by the generosity of Age of Steam Roundhouse. It was built in 1948 and weighs 243,000 tons.

Once again, there's steam in the Valley--if only for a little while.
