I believe that it was back in July of 2016 that we last devoted a Gallery to the topic of motive power. So, let's see what photos you have accumulated in the past two years.

Either model or prototype photos are welcome!

I'll kick us off with this photo of Black River & Western #60 which is an Alco made Consolidation (2-8-0) made in 1937. It started life working for the Great Northern out in Colorado and has been at the Black River & Western since 1965. Our Division road behind #60 at our Summer Event 10 days ago.

Also on the same trip with Bruce, there was M-55 a Brill doodlebug. We were told by a conductor that the M-55 was sold, earlier that week.



Nearby was this little Mack, parked on display. This guy did a lot of work for the railroad, especially in its early years of getting built in the 1960's.





And, I had to get a closeup shot of #60. I always like these types of photos.

Hello,

I don't even remember what state I was in when I took this some 25 years ago. I was on my bike, taking backroads, heading for Sturgis, SD, and all of a sudden this thing appeared. It was N&W J class 4-8-4 #611 just waking up in the early morning. It was pretty impressive, very large and very loud!
