Wow! I can’t imagine OSHA, the FRA, lawyers, and the media allowing anything like this in the USA.
It’s a race between three restored steam engines in Australia. Each is pulling a train with real, live passengers on board. At speed, through stations with spectators on the platforms. It’s truly an awe-inspiring sight (and sound!), and I’m glad there is at least one place in the world where it can still occur.
