This one seems to be in good shape. Note the unusually long tender that seems to be hooked backwards...

Hi Jose :wave:


Interesting photo.


The tender is very strange, appearing to be backwards.

Also the wheels/trucks look pretty odd too.

Could it have been improvised ?


What do you think about the consist it is hauling ?

A load of FLATCARS loaded with what appears to be DIRT ??

Car shortage perhaps ?


:brill:


Si.

Might just be fill or ballast like this image of an 1880s work train north of San Francisco.
I love the Chinese in this photo.  They were the backbone of railroad workers in the west after the completion of the transcontinental.
