I’m watching Psych, which I really enjoy. It’s plotted in a most disjointed manner, but has a nice sense of humor.


Our heroes are chasing down a steam train as if it were a regularly scheduled mainline train. I know it was a steam train. The shot of the passing engine showed a triple-cylinder compound drive.

In a quarter of a century of working for the railroad, I never saw a steam train in scheduled mainline service. Or branch line service. Or siding service.

Diesel. Diesel-electric. Electric. No steam.
