Remarks & Notes 
The cosmetic work looks great! Buffalo Creek and Gauley 14 received a full cosmetic restoration recently topped off with some fresh paint (I'm personally not a fan of the siderod color). I took advantage of the sun's location near the summer solstice to get some light on the north-facing side of the engine; the south side is well obscured by garden foliage and benches.

Interestingly, this 2-8-0 started off life in 1918 as an 0-8-0 switcher, built by Alco, who also did the conversion to a 2-8-0. Because it started off as a switcher, it has small drivers and two sand domes (why would the latter be true?). It was wrecked in 1956. The original owner was "c/n", then sold to Kelly's Creek and Northwestern, shortly after conversion, then sold to BC&G in 1950.
