Steam Saturday: The Ladies in the Cab on the Little River Railroad

Earlier this year the Strasburg Rail Road sent out a steam train with an all female engine operating crew of an engineer and fireman.

It got some attention from the railfan press but was not the first time that a steam train had women in control in the cab.

I witnessed an all female engine crew on the Little River Railroad at Coldwater, Michigan, on June 24,2012.

Ursula was able to get video of both the engineer and the fireman while I was pacing it. Here are some photographs from that chase.
