Photos of the #51 Steam Locomotive

Just posted the photos taken of my grandfather’s train – check them out at: http://birmingham.zenfolio.com/no51

The Great Western Railway Locomotive #51 was originally built in 1906. It recently underwent a huge restoration headed up by my father, Jim Birmingham. The series of photos was taken at the Hudson Terminal Railway in Colorado on October 31, 2009. They were prepping the revamped train to run for the first time in about four years. Most of my photos are during this preparation. Unfortunately I had to run directly to the airport and missed the big event when they took the train out on the main line. I am going back to Colorado in July though, so I hope to get some more shots then. Check back!
