This steam locomotive used to carry people from the Sacramento valley to the Gold Country and back during the gold rush. Today, it's located in James Town and it takes tourists on an hour-long ride through the country side.

Very nice Tuillo! I love trains almost as much as photography!

Great shots, Tullio. I've been a railroad buff for most of my life, hence the inclusion of a railroad topic in the list! It looks like that locomotive has been beautifully restored and is being maintained in pristine condition.

In the second shot, the contrast between the historic locomotive and the modern diesel dumptruck is most interesting.

Thank you all for your comments. Yes, Cal, the entire train has been restored and it's in excellent condition. The passenger cars look new, inside and out. Next to the station, there is a huge train museum and several sheds with old engines and cars that are currently undergoing restoration. It's a fun place to visit if you are a train fan.

Nice train shots, Tullio. I was thinking this would be an impossible one for me as the only steam locomotive I can think of local is the one that goes up Mount Washington and probably isn't running right now.

But, seeing your photos reminded me I probably have some of the train around Stone Mountain, Georgia from when we lived there. At least I think it was a steam locomotive.

I lived in Sacramento for a few years and later went to UC Davis. So, know the area you photograph some. Although, it was many years ago,

Thanks, nhmom. I know it will be impossible for me to find most items in the treasure hunt list, so I'm glad Igot at least this one!
