LAST TRAIN HOME – music video by 4101950

This is one of my favorite YouTube videos edited and mixed by 4101950 on Youtube.

US Jazz music artist Pat Metheny’s piece: “Last Train Home” is put to a great montage of some of the world’s most beautiful steam locomotives, most of them still in operation today.

Enjoy!

Italy’s Beautiful 685 class 196 express steam locomotive

 

When world steam enthusiasts think of steam locomotives, they don’t usually think of Southern European steam.  It is a pity.  If one is familiar with Italian architecture and inventions through history, then one needs to equate Italy’s contributions to the world.  The 685 class of express steam locomotives of Italy are amongst the elegant and nicely designed steam engines of the 20th century.  For its size, it was capable of great speeds and power.  This image represents one of the two 685 locomotives preserved today for railfans to see and ride behind in Southern Europe.
