   Ole buzzard  This is Southern Railway #4501 as it appeared in 1985. At that time, it was painted in Southern's passenger paint scheme of Hunter Green and red. Although it wore the passenger scheme well, it was historically inaccurate, since it was never applied to the locomotive until it entered excursion service. As a freight locomotive, it spent its entire service life with the railroad in the black and grey paint scheme.

   Ole buzzard  The Tennessee Valley Railroad Museum recently restored Southern Railroad 2-8-2 locomotive #4501. This locomotive was built for the railroad in 1911 and was returned to service this past weekend in excursion service. Along side it is another restored Southern locomotive, 2-8-0 #630.

   Ole buzzard  Crawford Hill in northeast Nebraska is an important part of Burlington Northern Santa Fe's Chicago to San Francisco main line and it is also the connection to the coal fields in the Powder River Basin. For that reason, it is meticulously maintained, as seen in this photo by Steven Phillips.

   Ole buzzard  The best photos of steam locomotives operating are made in cold weather, when both the smoke and the steam exhaust make the billowing clouds.

   Bettijo  Great pictures, Wright. Several remind me of the oil painting I did many years ago of two Pensy locomotives coming out of the steam at night. I posted this pic on this wall a couple of years ago. I visited this photographer's other sites and they brought back many memories. Mind if I shed a tear or two?
