Hey Addy!

It was four years ago, so, I do not really know. According to Wikipedia page of the German Museum of Technology, it is either the cab of the Prusian S10 or the DRB Class 50. That is all I could easily find.

Joe,

The photos might be taken from inside the S-10, the BR-50 class locomotive would have smoke deflectors, sometimes called Elephant Ears. The steam engine on the right side is a Class 01, or BR-01 which has a 4-6-2 wheel arrangement, which we would call a Pacific class locomotive. It was for high speed passenger service. The BR-50 was a 2-10-0 locomotive for freight service. The S10 is an older locomotive originally of the Prussian State Railroad. a 4-6-0 we would call a 10 wheeler like Engine #40 of the NNRY.

Kind regards,

Kelly

thanks Doc
a 2-5-0 is a pretty impressive deal. Also, its interesting still having many around, especially whenever you saw an old war movie an obligatory scene was the American fighter strafing a German steam engine, blowing up the boiler

When I 1st saw Tony's Bolivia, train relics in the desert, I immediately thought of Nevada Northern and wondered how close it came to the same fate, out there in the middle of No Where. And how lucky we were😱
Take Care Kelly!_______Joe

You are welcome, Joe, I did make a typo, however which I have corrected. not 2-5-0 rather 2-10-0. Sorry about that. Many engines similar to the Br-50 were built by Germany during WWII and they were the Br-52, the so called "Kriegslok".   

Yes, we are very lucky that the NNRY is preserved and so well managed by Mark Basset and crew. It could have suffered the same fate. BTW, Kennecott Copper has/had a huge mine here, but the railroad is long gone. The mine has new ownership which is Rio Tinto.

Kind regards,

Kelly

Up6544 @ Taggart Tunnel # 3.



Sony A7III, Zeiss Batis 40mm f2, 1/500 F8 ISO 640

This is one of the original grades and tunnels of the transcontinental railroad.
You can see the orginal construction here:

Tunnel # 3 @ Taggart

This is also one of my favorite train watching locations in Weber Canyon. In my photo you can't see the Weber river, but it is winding along this solid granite rock face and behind the trees and shrubs.

In this photo you can better view the tunnels

I caught up with Up with UP 6544 again, laboring up the steep grade in Echo Canyon.

Fresh out of the oven. Kinda mind-blowing to be able to put parts of your own body in a shot you take yourself (without doing a selfie, obviously).

Boneyard? Not so lucky 7+ with SlC skyline. For Joe! Note: this is a new set of locomotives, not the locomotives I posted a couple months ago. No idea what is happening with them.
