Remarks: For the second consecutive year, the Wilmington & Western brought out its two steam locomotives (known in England as 'Pufferbellies') for a double-headed trio of trips through the Red Clay Valley. The crown-jewel of the railroad #98 is on the point; an American classic all in one. And providing the muscle for these trips would be the pug-faced American hero #58; known as the 'Veterans Locomotive'. So sit back, and enjoy the fun as these two 'Pufferbellies' give you twice as much entertainment.
Awasome double-header of two classic steamers! I'll be seeing a double header of two narrow guage classics at the Huckleberry Railroad's Railfan weekend next week! The engines include former Alaska Engineering Commission 4-6-0 #152 and former Rio grande K-27 class 2-8-2 #464.
Twice as much entertainment, indeed, thanks for sharing!

I* think the correct term for steamers in the UK is "Puffing Billies" ,at least that's how I remember it as a youngster growing up there. I was a great train watcher. . The term I think was mostly applied to the smaller steam locomotives.
