An Old Steam Locomotive

During most of our journey across the country, the train was rolling along on its tracks. Sometimes, though, it had to pull over and let freight trains go by. In that case, we might have had to wait for an hour or two at a standstill. Once we had to wait for four hours. (A switch had broken AND freight trains had to get by!) And you can't get off the train, no matter what!
This old steam locomotive was on display at a "scheduled" stop along the route. Did you notice the ladder? What about the Christmas lights?
