What is Steampunk?

From Steampunk Wiki - "Steampunk is a sub-genre of science fiction, alternate history, and speculative fiction that came into prominence during the late 1980's and early 1990's. Specifically, steampunk involves an era or world where steam power is still widely used, typically the Victorian Era and the Edwardian Era,  that incorporates prominent elements of science fiction and fantasy. A modicum of fantasy is necessary because steam alone simply will not do enough to fulfil the visions of most authors and artists."

The "Railway to the Moon" Festival is the Mount Washington Cog Railways' tribute and appreciation of all steampunk culture. Featuring historic steam trains as the backdrop, the festival is a celebration of vendors, presentations, history buffs and outfits that will dazzle the eye. A free to the public event, the festival operates at the train yard of the Mount Washington Cog Railway.
