Taking a ride on ol’ 476

Meanwhile, we’re takin’ a flashback ride on ol’ 476.

Built in 1923 for the Rio Grande, today she’s a quarter-million pounds of pure coal-fired steam-powered locomotive fun on the Durango & Silverton run. Grabbed the shot at the Cascade Canyon where we filled her up with a splash of around 4,000 gallons of water.
