105 year old steam locomotive in nearby Poway is nearing boiler replacement time.. it's only been 75 years since the last one

story from http://www.utsandiego.com/news/2012/jul/05/old-locomotive-running-out-steam/ 

it gets a tourist run 2wice a month, but the boiler is just OLD and patched for the last time.

the engine is a 1907 Baldwin, and is at the Poway park with the train restoration faciltiy (cool place that I went to in 2007 http://justacarguy.blogspot.com/2007/06/any-day-around-trains-is-good-day.html )
