Catch a glimpse of Steam Locomotives on Live Webcams
Sit in your own house and watch live video of steam locomotives on the other side of the world. Here are three interesting one's I found:
South Devon Railway (they show the scheduled times in local time) - http://www.southdevonrailwayassociation.org/RailCam.shtml
Grosmont Station (North Yorkshire Moors Railway) at https://www.nymr.co.uk/live-webcam
Bishops Lydeard Station, West Somerset Railway (with SOUND) at http://www.wsr.org.uk/r-cam-bl2.htm
Being live though, you may have to wait a bit to actually see a train.
Many more can be found listed at https://www.railserve.com/RailCams/.
