The first loco appears to be a Great Northern class F-8 2-8-0. According to what I can find it was built by Baldwin in 1907.
As for the second loco I can't give you any info other then that it appears to a a Mikado type 2-8-2. It looks to me that it is from a logging RR.

I agree with Dan, she is indeed an F-8 built by Baldwin on 11/1907, build #32297. It's cylinders have a 20" bore and 32" stroke, 55" drivers and operated on 210psi boiler pressure. A total engine weight of 195,000 lbs with 180,000 of that weight on it's drivers producing 41,540 of tractive effort.

This locomotive was placed on display in Woodland Park, Seattle, WA on 7/18/53.

The Great Northern Railway Society is trying to keep track of all the GN loco's and equipment, could you give me more info as to it's exact location so that I may pass this information on to them?


Kindest Regards,

Allen, the third photo looks very much like the oil tender from a 3-truck Shay.

It's a shame that a lot of this old equipment has become little more than trash containers on wheels.
