Loved but Gone

In any collecting endeavor, you have favorite pieces you keep forever.  Other pieces eventually pass back from whence they came...usually eBayed, some sold privately and a few traded for other pieces. 

There is no specific order of departure here, simply an alphabetical photo listing of engines, turbines and accessories that have passed thru the Temple of Steam and on to another admirer over the past 10 years I've been collecting. 

Most photos were taken by me, a few photos were taken by new owners at my request, and a few photos are of an "example" piece provided by others where I've lost the original photo. 

It is Mar 2015 and as of this writing 115 total pieces have passed thru the Temple of Steam and on to other collectors. 

I've turned over a few pieces in 13 years of actively being engaged in this hobby...all part of the fun for me !!!
