The turntable beside the three-stall engine house looks barely large enough to cater Pacific type #2207. The late Del Rosamond likely climbed on top of a boxcar to capture this image.  I've been told that one of Del's signature trademarks is that his photos were often taken from elevated positions.  Del served 30 years on the Pembroke Fire Department.  His family tells me that he had no fear of heights.

  1. Just everyday steam, doing what railroads did, efficiently and with deep character. Such a great, really great, shot!

  2. Fantastic shot! What a classic!

  3. After spending a few hundred dollars to restore Mr. Rosamond’s collection, it is gratifying to know that others are enjoying these images as much as I am. Your kind comments and “Gold Stars” are appreciated!

  4. Beautiful. What a difference from today. Not so much the idyllic times of the past, but the very fact one was allowed to roam railroad properties almost at will. I got into this hobby just about the time such activity was being curtailed. As a result, my climbing escapades were far and few between. And sneaky! This is one tremendous photograph and deserves plenty of recognition.

  5. A wonderful historic shot.

  6. What a fantastic shot.
