Last year in the UK a group of steam enthusiasts completed the first brand new steam engine in, well quite a while. It was built using original designs for the A1 Pacific. Since it's completion it has been run all over the country on enthusiast excursions etc.

With a steam engine you could go through water as long as it was  not deep enough to put out the fire.
