Wordless Wednesday #142

Bill Caloroso – Cal’s Classics

Talky Tuesday #99

4-6-0 #119 leads a mixed freight in last week’s “WW #141”. 5 cars back is a mid-train helper. A number of photos show a helper engine multiple cars back in S&NY freights; I assume this was due to weight restrictions on bridges. Location of the photo is uncertain.

Talky Tuesday #98

S&NY #117 displays her fireman’s side on “WW #140” from December 20th. The jacketing over the boiler could use a little repair, but the 117 still looks to be in service, given the white flags on the smokebox and the load of coal in the tender. #117 was a 1900 product of the Schenectady Works, purchased used from the NYC as #1748 in 1926. The 2-6-0 went to the scrapper after abandonment.
