It looks as though there are two of them in this photo.

Now that's a powerful piece of equipment. This photo is not one of our restored locomotive shots, but in fact the beast was photographed in the day of the beast! Fortunately for this Yellowstone-type, the EPA was not around then. Great, historic photo. Thanks for sharing!

Next to time travel, your photo is the next best thing.

I have to agree with thewiz - looks like there are two locomotives. The twin stacks are obvious, but looking at the left of the photo there appears to be two sets of a couple of things.

Looking at this wonderful image closer, there are in fact two Yellowstones side by side, check out the cow catchers and couplers up front..there are two of them

Wonderful photo! Being from Painesville myself (unfortunately after the age of steam), I have read documents that stated that the B&O even triple headed these monsters through Painesville. It was truely a sad day when the rail line was abandoned.

I was only 3 years old when they abandoned this line, so I don't ever remember it. But what a cool shot from back when the B&O was in its heyday in Painesville. Does your dad have any more pictures you could post here?

I grew up about 150 yards away from the Warren-Astabula line in Warren,Oh; my dad would talk about the time the EM-1's would thunder by, including the time that the vibration was so bad that it broke many residents windows. My father mentioned that after having the front glass window of the door replaced, they had to shorten pane, thus changing the pitch of the vibration, so as to prevent the glass from breaking again. Its too bad that none of these engines were saved! I would've loved to model one in HO sacle. Does anyone know of any resource books. Thanks.

I'm also from Painesville. I was able to shoot the engine house in 1968, not long before it was torn down. I was just a bit too young to see steam there, but I do remember seeing steam on the NKP as my house was close enough to see that line. By the way, the B&O engine house was near the NYC crossing, not the NKP.
