Douglas - There's alot of really nice shots here though I found myself  
skimming past qute a number of images that had stuff: plants, fences,  
a sheet of plywood, steam, etc. between the viewer and the subject in  
otherwise fine shots.  Maybe those had interest for someone with an  
abiding interest in these locomotives, but for me the blockages were  

For me, photographically, these are the best:

0244, 0351, 0363, 0380, 0407, 0414, 0428, 0015, and 0260.   Nice  
catches, all.

Looks like an interesting place.
