    American locomotives tend to resemble function over form, bolting appliances, and running pipe where it is convenient, the British tend to be form over function, made steam locomotives incredibly beautiful, and mx a bit of a nightmare with all the running gear inside the frame, and the Germans tend to be highly engineered, functional, and good looking. Yes, all steam locomotives are works of art in my opinion, especially when fired up!

    And just for historical purposes, Reinhard Heydrich's home that he grew up in, right next to the hotel we stay at.
