Around Helmstetters by DragonWolfACe Around Helmstetters by DragonWolfACe
Western Maryland Scenic Railroad 2-8-0 734 storms around Helmstetters curve on a early January morning during a Carl Franz photo tour.

Despite the snow, its close to 40 degrees and would rise into the 50s. There was so much snow that by the end of the day, there was still much snow left.

Everything about this picture is outstandingly beautiful.

The curve of the track, the smoke trial that billows over the top with the most amazing colour pouring from the funnel, the cold, snowy landscape compared to the roaring blast of the furnace visible in the glowing engine windows...Even the angle of the train.  Wonderfully orchestrated photograph.

A tribute to pollution....

While I agree it is artistically beautiful, watching our planet be killed doesn't help me like this.

One steam engine running a day isnt going to kill the planet. However, Im more concerned about the ongoing polluting of our limited water supply by the use of fracking. The pharmaceutical drugs that are being found in the water supply, this stuff that slips thru a water plant and cannot be cleaned. The bioengineered of plants and insects (killer bees). Lets not mention doctors who prescribe everyone with some kind of illness or sickness, "Here, take this pill" mentality.

Yeah, air pollution is concern, and great strides have been taken to clean it, unfortunately, there are far bigger issues than just air pollution. Possibly something like WW3. Pollution isnt going to mean jack shit if the world is glowing. However, I believe that if we do all off ourselves, nature will survive. Look up "Nuclear Wolves", a documentary of how nature is thriving after the Chernobyl meltdown.

Also, most of the "pollution" you see is either ash, which falls to the ground, and steam, IE, water vapor. Not all, but most.

Agreed, but really, things need to change on the Demand side, as long as Oil is so demanded it's worth 100$ a barrel it WILL get through, whether by pipeline or the more inefficient and dirtier way of smuggling in bottles strapped under cars. If something better can come and usurp the market before the oil tycoons can silence it, ideally backed by nations without major oil reserves of their own but which are still significant economic powers... kersploosh.

You can expect the next World War to be over maintaining the dominance of oil.

Yes, but as long as the demand is there. And not everything can run on natural gas, ethanol (USs version is a joke), methane, or hydrogen so the demand will remain. Only when an alternative fuel source that the oil companies dong screw with is developed will this change.

Whats this smuggling that you talk of? Do you have proof?

I do believe you might be right about WW3.

Easy to prove that as long as something is expensive enough and in demand it WILL be smuggled, refer to the whole drug trade.
