Re: [HOn3] Re: K-36 Nickname....They were "Baby Grandes"
- No wonder the name didn't stick. Baby Grande sounds more like a
half-sandwich on the menu of a Farmington cafe than a beefy narrow gauge
The D&RGW first used the name "Baby Grande" to refer to the K-36s in
their press releases and in the "Scenic Line" employees magazine in 1926.
- Ed, Thank you very much for this most interesting account. It's all too easy for these important facts to get lost. Good thing somebody asked you! I'll appreciate these K-36 engines all the more, including those who managed to tide them over the leanest period.
Thanks again, and greetings from Switzerland,
