Challenge has finished
This one is easy, since I'm asking you to capture something material... or not! Trains. I ride them weekly, some ride them daily, and a few others put food on their table by riding them all day!

This is the steam engine that gives rides just ouside of the Railroad Museum in Sacramento, California. I wish I knew more of the history of this engine but if I remember correctly; it's an oil burning switching engine where the oil is held in the boxy tanks on each side of the boiler. It is also one of the earliest steam engines to feature "Westinghouse" air-brakes.
