The Steampunk World

Being the continued explorations of a living steampunk.

The steampunk world is all around us, lying just out of sight, in a continuous thread of steampunk builders and culture that extends from the Victorian era to the present. You'll find no science fiction here: This is real life steampunk.

snoqualmie falls


I suppose this doesn't count as a "graveyard" because the Snoqualmie Railway Museum is actively restoring and running steam equipment.  But the long line of rusty locomotives is quite an impressive sight.  Go around back and talk to the old dude with the wacky house before you sneak in, otherwise he will chase you out.

Even from this distance you should be able to tell that this is a Shay.

Oooh... a delightful arrangement.

Now this is an interesting fellow... his locomotive boiler runs, well, a giant snowblower.  It's pushed through the snow by a few other locomotives.

This thing runs at 60 RPM!
