    fortapache
    (2750 items)

    The OERM being the Orange Empire Railway Museum. Just went there for their annual Behind the Scenes event.
    These two pieces are a tad rusty and very far from being restorable but were actual steam powered equipment. Steam shovels such as this one built the Panama Canal. And somehow all rollers are called steam rollers but almost always not steam powered. This one is an actual steam roller.
