19th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Travel
Era Lost to Time
You look up to see nothing but a light then you hear a roar of a 77 year old whistle. Soon the ground begins to shake below you. Before you know it a 15 foot tall 404 ton black mass is running straight at you. As it passes you become covered in the lightest of dustings of coal and ash. With a blink of an eye a relic from the past flies by at 70mph. Nickel Plate Road Steam Locomotive No. 765 is gone. Just like the era it came from.
