Here are Three Photos of Steam Locomotives. The first one is of three steamers pulling a train. That was pretty unusual for that time period. The second photo shows one pulling away from a Water tank and the third Photo shows one sitting on a Round Table that was about to turn and direct the Locomotive to another track Direction. My Father - in - Law used to Work on and repair Steamers.

    Thank You kerry10456. I didnt know you were a railroad Man. I just retired last year after 40 years with a Shortline myself. I read your comment on the Keys. I have a small collection of them also.

    Awesome pics! I think the tripple-header might be Sierra # 3 the 'movie star' engine at Railtown in Jamestown CA.

    Pics 1 and 2 looks like it's the same engine in both.
  14. musikchoo musikchoo, 2 years ago
    You are right beachbomb, but at a closer look you will notice photo one has two other steamers pulling with number 3.

    CN & CP both used helper engines in the mountains of western Canada in the steam era, they also used them in the middle of the prairies.
    Link to images of CP engines, scroll down about halfway to images for Minnedosa.

    What was your job on the railway?
  23. musikchoo musikchoo, 2 years ago
    Thank You for the info. walksoftly !! I retired June of 2011 with 40 years service. I started in 1970 as a Brakeman and worked my way to Engineer. The last 23 years was in the Engineer seat. This was a short line in Texas, so we worked at everything over the years, From track work to everything else!! How about you??

    I never worked the railroad but have lived my whole life a few miles from the CN mainline.
    I give up farming 10 years ago, but the railway was integral to our grain production. We were lucky to have rail access so close to our farm.
    I've always enjoyed watching the trains & hearing the stories from my Dad about the Steam era.

    Are You a Railroad Collector? WE had many coming by to take photos of our Baldwin Locomotives. We had Two of the Few actively switching in Texas.

    No, just like them!
    If you look at my posts you will see a few railroad items.
    I would love to see one of the big ones with the steam up.
