I'm a fireman on a 90-ton 1923 MLW built 2-6-2. Anytime we do a blowdown it's like a jet aircraft taking off - always gets the passengers' heads turning and all the cameras clicking. Usually scares the little kids too. :-)Originally Posted by PragmaticIdealist
As far as atribute to Walt, I think a two stall engine house with a historically correct look should be built in Frontierland. Have a siding track going off the mainline to the engine shed. The shed would be accessible to visitors at all times and have one of the engines that is currently not running on that day on display there with a few CMs dressed in the correct crew attire explaining how a steam locomotive works.
