In eastern Pennsylvania lies the Strasburg Railroad running 2.5 miles through Amish country with Norfolk Western 4-6-0 No. 475.
Over in Colorado the Georgetown Loop is famous for the high trestle that spans the valley as the line loops over itself on the climb to Silver Plume. We see Baldwin 2-8-0 No. 111 in action.
