you get to do cool things...
YES! I love to drive the train whenever I can
but I first learned HOW to drive an engine from reading about it.
The Engine Driver's Manual
(How to prepare, fire and drive a steam locomotive)
by Brain Topping
Is one of my favorite books.
It took a long time, many hours of practice
Don't be afraid. Look it up.
Don't fret about it - LEARN ABOUT IT!
