A great opportunity for those who can do it.
Saves all those years of doing grunt work, firing, and then finally getting to the right-hand side in museum-tourist line service like a lot of us here did. Great topic for those BS sessions when everyone is trying to outdo each other's experiences. "Hey, ever operate a steam locomotive? No? Well, I did."
When they don't believe me, I just whip out my NJ black seal steam loco license. (Well, it's in a frame, on the wall)
