Taking a break in the hot summer August day 1960. Four man crew, engineer, fireman and two switchmen.
The engineer by the name of Smith, had a Traction Engine license to operate this engine.
I spent part of the afternoon riding the cab with him as they switched the plant. The engine was retired by April 1961.
