other files i have and there are many photos in the new annual that i
could not locate in these books. Some are of flatcars with loads,
also tankcars, as well as passenger equipment. I must concur with
Andrew that the shot of locomotive #8 that Mal stated says the
handwriting on the back says Mina is not Mina. To the rear of the
loco is the a portion of the S.P. engine facility in Colax, which is
very close in appearance to the facility at Mina.Maybe this caused
the mis-label. The dead give-a-way is the cliff over the pilot of the
loco. There are no such cliffs in the Mina yard. Just other
structures and sage with a few trees.
Also, correct me if I am wrong, if there would have been a S.P to
N.C.N.G. 2-8-0 at Mina, as the discussed photo, would this not have
been N.C.N.G.#9 (the 2nd #1 on the S.P.N.G.), the other 2-8-0, which
arrived on the N.C.N.G. from the S.P. in 1933. I dont think the #8
was on the S.P.N.G. The only other 2-8-0 on S.P. was # 13 which was
scrapped in 1927. I am new on the N.C.N.G. so any additional input
would be great.
Anyway, I am personally greatful to Mal for sharing his collection
with us mislabeled or not. Look what its got us doing, research, just
another part of being a rail-buff. I love it!!
