If you missed the sights and heart-pounding sounds of double headed 2-10-2 steam locomotives storming up Inner Mongolia’s legendary Jingpeng Pass, another opportunity awaits! ONLY this time, it is a triple header, right here in the U.S.A.

Being up close and personal to a triple headed steam excursion is a birthday I will always remember!

Travels this birthday included 30 minutes of instruction in a Boeing 737!

Highway travel included 1500 miles in a new Corvette!
