I headed to Edmonton to visit my dad (age 86) and decided to make a weekend of it by taking the rural route to Edmonton, visiting Stettler, home of Alberta Prairie Railways
. I spent a pleasant hour photographing locomotive 41 and chatting with the fireman in the cab.
They offered to remove the rag for me but I insisted on leaving it in situ - there's a lot of cleaning and oiling of these beasts and it seemed appropriate.
