On engine house track. Cylinder cocks open. Note the coal boards.


"The increased coal capacity is consistent with use on the local, usually as the helper on the westbound (East Ely to Cobre; northward in Timetable 70 from 1947). Never heard of the 92 being used on the local, but as the steam (era) came to an end, lots of different things probably happened." — Steve Swanson
