Some of you may have been watching the UP3985 Steam Train object
steaming along on your maps.  Based on which engine they use it's
sometimes engine UP844 instead.

Because I can't easily discern which engine is being used I've
changed the name of the object to "STEAM".

If any of you are train-chasers and have set up igates to gate the
object to RF, gate the "STEAM" object now instead.

Ron in OR gated "UP3985" to RF a while back then chased the train
through part of OR using his D700A.  He handed me a _wonderful_
videotape of the train and was able to intercept it multiple times
using this technique.
