A steam locomotive is a railway locomotive that produces its pulling power through a steam engine. These locomotives are fueled by burning combustible material, usually coal, wood or oil, to produce steam in a boiler, which drives the steam engine. Both fuel and water supplies are carried with the locomotive, either on the locomotive itself or in wagons (tenders) pulled behind. (From Wikipedia)

Good perspective on this locomotive with a smoking stack and spurting vapor. Excellent colors and good details, including the train man.

An impressive engine with an particularly impressive smokestack! It is rolling into the picture and your picture is taken at the right moment. Like a scene from a Wild West movie. A very fine picture.

nice the view of the 'iron hourse' toward lens.I like the movement with the steam to spread on both sides of it.Excellent the light and the colour management as the clarity of the scene.

I love steam locomotives, this is the most unusual one I have seen. I wonder why they made such a big fat smokestack for it. A good capture with both the steam and the smoke showing very well

Excellent "steamer" close-up photo with very nice colors, perfect light, very good clarity. Superb low angle POV. The well-chosen tight crop eliminates all unwanted distractions.
Wish you a very nice rest of the week.

It certainly has style of classic American locomotive. So Las Vegas has a museum railway, or is this a special visitor? I like your spacious framing leaving room for steam and smoke clouds.

This is an amazing and intriguing sight for me, Eleu, as we do not have even one single steam-engine in Israel, let alone in a working / riding condition.
Old locomotive, with a huge round chimney atop, decorated in shining brass lamp.
Well collected from along the tracks, while puffing...

an interesting and delightful presentation of this fascinating steam locomotive in action. The perspective is subtle and effective, I like the diagonal of the tracks and the glimpse at the surroundings. You have given much space to the sky, which makes a wonderful, contrasting backdrop. It's great to see the smoke going to three different directions. The human presence is strong and enhances our interest in the engine and the action. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a great day,

Good front view of this steam locomotive with a unique large smoke stack.
I am curious where and which engine this guy is?
On a side note: Union Pacific's famous "Big Boy" locomotive is being moved from the Pomona train museum temporarily to Colton where it will be on view for a short time, before being transported to Wyoming to be rejuvenated for future excursions.
