I'm not a particularly religious individual, but, that said: "Holy Jesus, this is just an absolutely outstanding addition to the database!!!" - I'm hoping that this is just the first of many jewels about to be revealed from that shoebox hidden away in your closet !!!

An excellent example of a fireman that knows how to fire a steam locomotive. Just a slight haze of smoke from the stack. If I were the engineer on that, I would by the fireman's dinner.

Nice looking photo of nearly 1 million pounds of locomotive! Your photo was taken at a nice angle showing the running gear with her huge low pressure cylinders, the canteen car and string of hoppers...and not to mention the mountains of West Virginia. Thanks for sharing!

Everything has basically already been said of this awesome scene and really an even more awesome machine, but here is another observation of something not seen very much anymore, but was common back then. Look at all of the spike holes in the lineside pole! How many times lineman had been up and down that thing. You'd get a palm full of splinters just leaning against that pole with your hand......sheesh!
