Talky Tuesday #64

Wordless Wednesday #106 of two weeks ago is a classic 3/4 rods-down view of S&NY engine #112. I am unsure of the location of this photo. I had originally thought Towanda, but given the company houses in the background, the location could be Masten or Laquin, or even Barclay Station in light of the early date.

#112 was purchased new by the S&NY from Baldwin in 1906 and sold to the Central Pennsylvania Lumber Co. in 1913. The engine looks essentially new in this view, with smart striping on the drivers, steam chests, domes, oil headlight, and cab.

Behind the engine is a Standard Steel Car Co. hopper car lettered for Jamison Coal and Coke Co. These hoppers were first produced in 1903, with over 11,000 produced by 1913 for various railroads and coal companies.
