Iron Horses & Iron Bridges – Rail Travel
If you “google” Steam Train History, you will be presented with 1,810,000 results! I was searching for a particular event I witnessed a few years ago. It was an awe-inspiring, adventure fulfilling, adrenalin pumping experience. As this behemoth steams her way through the Sierra Nevada, then through the Feather River Canyon. Crisscrossed by lakes, streams and rivers, the Sierras served as an exhilarating backdrop for the fire-breathing, steam belching creature that carefully navigated the land of creeks and canyons on previously laid ribbons of steel.
