Tracking the Light Extra—Conway Scenic 7470 Fire Lit.

Tracking the Light is on location at North Conway, New Hampshire.

For the first time in more than four years Conway Scenic 0-6-0 7470 (former Grand Trunk) has a fire in its boiler.

Gordon Lang, who on August 3, 1974 was the first to light a fire in 7470 on Conway Scenic, did the honors again just after 3pm today (May 31, 2019).

The locomotive was last steamed in January 2015, and after months of restoration and repair will soon be moving again under its own power.

I made these photos of 7470 using my FujiFilm XT1 with a 12mm Zeiss Touit lens.
