1896 Steam Locomotive - Grapevine, Texas

This old steam locomotive has been sitting in this engine barn for three years awaiting repairs to a piston sleve and other items. Many said it would never run again but due to the dedication
of many volunteers and many long hours of work and money spent she is once again alive with steam. I wanted to give this photo the treatment it deserved and to me that could only mean
Black & White. All of the classic photos I have ever seen of old steam locomotives have been B&W so I felt it only fitting to post process this shot in the same manner.
