Union Pacific's 844, a steam locomotive with restored passenger cars passing Steins, New Mexico. Part of New Mexico's centennial celebration.

Thank you. I was a cold and windy morning when the train came through Steins NM.

Thank you. The number of people that turned out to see the train pass was impressive considering it was the middle of nowhere.

What a great opportunity, I have been past Steins many times, One of these days I'm stopping.

A group from the Portal Rodeo Hiking Club made a special detour that morning on the way to the weekly hike just to see the train pass. The ghost town was not open at that time though, so I did not have a chance to see the place up close.
