Remarks & Notes 
"A Man of Steam Part 2": The silhouette of Dave Domitrovich, stands out from the steam engulfing both him and the N&W M Class he is aboard, as #475 clears her lungs on the blowdown pad at the Strasburg Rail Road complex. You may notice the upturned brim on Dave's hat and although hard to see, the well worn jacket with wool trim. Those belonged to former SRC Engineman David Boyer. It has been about 3 years since his passing and while it seems like yesterday that he's been gone, the memory of David around the railroad lives on particularly in his good friend Dave. For steam railroaders, like Dave, this job is not just a check. It's a passion, a livelihood, and a tradition. And even with David Boyer gone from this Earth, I'm sure Dave knows his friend is still right there with him every time he tugs on the throttle of an iron horse.
