It's a historic day in the small community of Laws, Calif. as an active Southern Pacific steam locomotive barks through the small yard here with a pair of cars. Doing the honors this afternoon is newly restored Southern Pacific Railroad No. 18, beautifully brought back to life by the members of the Carson & Colorado Railway based in Independence, Calif. This weekend's running of No. 18 in Laws was the first time in over 60 years a steam locomotive opereted on this line, and for the many photographers seen present throughout the yard and many that were unable to attend - hopefully only the start of more exciting outings to come!
