My first HDR pano.  It actually looks really nice when it's not all compressed for this website.

Some information on the placard: “Locomotive 488 was built July 1906, in Pittsburgh, PA. In 1925, it underwent major  changes in Pittsburg, KS and changed to locomotive 1023. Track was laid and locomotive was installed in Schlanger Park on September 17, 1955, after the city had purchased the locomotive from the Kansas City Southern Lines for $1.00. The steam locomotive was the main mode of travel in the days of the old frontier".

UPDATE:  I followed the advice of a comment left below and re-uploaded the files for a better quality display. I hope you enjoy!
