Huntsville Train Depot Engine
USA

Here we are standing in front of the main steam engine at the Historic Huntsville Depot Museum. This particular engine was manufactured in Pittsburgh around the turn of the century. It was designed to work in a switch yard, pulling various cars into position. Now it serves as a piece of playground equipment for small children. The various knobs and levers have been reconfigured to invoke the playback of authentic railroad sounds. Trailing behind it is a passenger car, boxcar, and a caboose, which visitors can similarly explore.

More About USA

The United States is one of the most diverse countries on earth, jam packed full of amazing sights from St. Patrick's cathedral in New York to Mount Hollywood California.The Northeast region is where it all started. Thirteen British colonies fought the American Revolution from here and won their independence in the first successful colonial rebellion in history. Take a look at these rolling hills carpeted with foliage along the Hudson river here, north of New York City.The American south is known for its polite people and slow pace of life. Probably they move slowly because it's so hot. Southerners tend not to trust people from "up north" because they talk too fast. Here's a cemetery in Georgia where you can find graves of soldiers from the Civil War.The West Coast is sort of like another country that exists to make the east coast jealous. California is full of nothing but grizzly old miners digging for gold, a few gangster rappers, and then actors. That is to say, the West Coast functions as the imagination of the US, like a weird little brother who teases everybody then gets famous for making freaky art.The central part of the country is flat farmland all the way over to the Rocky Mountains. Up in the northwest corner you can find creative people in places like Portland and Seattle, along with awesome snowboarding and good beer. Text by Steve Smith.
