21st Century steam action

It seems incredible that active steam still clings to life at a handful of locations around the globe. For the latest on two of the most amazing survivors follow the links below. All videos are by Rob and Yuehong Dickinson.

Scroll down and click on the first pic for video images of regular steam on the the narrow gauge line in Shibanxi, China - these were taken less than two weeks ago.

It is also worth going down to the second pic for street car running in Calcutta taken in February this year.

The following link takes you to four steam clips of the Tipong colliery railway in North East India taken in January this year. (You need to scroll down to get to the clips)

I have some stills I took of the same operation 29 years ago and I will try and post some of these in the Thursday proto fun thread.

Yes indeed. I should have made a point of highlighting that one.
