Out of the Blue

We have some work being done on the chimney here at the Blue Tower, as it was starting to deteriorate to the point where we feared it would come tumbling down one day. Contradicting that theory is just how much effort was required to remove the old brick, as the whole place was shaking at times as this process unfolded. Thankfully, that part of the project is complete, and in just a few weeks the headache the demolition gave me will start to ease.

I love steam engines of all kinds, and really hope they'll make a comeback some day (minus the coal). At least they're once again building new steam locomotives. They're also working on diesel/steam hybrids, which is pretty awesome in my book.
