A sample of the pictures Cassandra posted today on the Crown Locomotive Facebook.  Kenny's engine on the factory test track before being delivered.  Note that people are riding where the propane tanks should be.  They didn't need much fuel on a track that was maybe 700 feet long.

 photo of CP&LE #44 aka Judy K idling at frontiertown at night on the 7th of August, 2021. I needed a reason to post this because I found out at the start of of March that I will be a fireman on the Cedar Point & Lake Erie railroad. I go for my on-boarding appointment on the 30th of April.

They are replacing the skeletons FD with real people? :lol:

In all seriousness, the train needs its own firefighters?

Firefighters no, but firemen yes! Fireman is the person who controls the amount of steam generated for the locomotive. They’re the ones who would feed the fire, and add water to create steam. It’s a delicate act but also very important one, not enough water could lead to the locomotive going caboom! Depending on what fuels the fire, it can be labor intensive position as well.
