Real Life Steampunk

Okay, this is pretty awesome. :) The video shows the Kempton Park (England) big triple steam engine starting up. First they start a small engine to one side, then engage it with one of the flywheels and the big engine starts up. When I first started watching, I thought the small one was the the thing, and was all, "Okay, that's kinda cool..." Then the big one started. Whee!

I have no idea what the engineer who's running the thing is saying when he talks; I can only make out a few words here and there, between his accent and the noise of the engine. No big deal -- it's still very cool to watch.

Makes me want to write some more steampunk, this time with some really big engines. :D
