    “Steam Locomotives” will feature Mike Sweeney, a local Steam Locomotive aficionado. As a child, his dad took him to Union Station, just to watch the trains, and ever since, he’s been in love with them, especially steam locomotives. He’s been guest engineer on steam engines in Maryland, Pennsylvania, and New York, and will tell you what it was like for the engineers and crew who worked the Railroads back in the day.
