Talky Tuesday #66

An unknown S&NY locomotive takes on water in “WW #108” of two weeks ago. Timeframe is likely early spring, given the snow on the ground. The water going into the tank is probably C-O-L-D!

Of interest is the coal of various sizes in the bunker and scattered on the tender deck, including a large portion of “fines”, suggesting this is unsorted “mine run” coal.

I cannot identify the fireman in the photo; perhaps a reader can provide the info.
