C&S Photos on eBay.

Jim Courtney
This post was updated on .
In the last few days, several neat C&S photos have shown up on eBay:


http://www.ebay.com/itm/RPPC-PHOTO-COLORADO-SOUTHERN-RAILROAD-LOCOMOTIVE-62-w-MIXED-TRAIN-ST-ELMO-1922-/122605330735?hash=item1c8bd8e12f:g:fXwAAOSw2kZZboM8




A familiar, but uncropped, Ducca image of C&S 62 with the Romley mixed in Chalk Creek Canon.

Seldom photographed C&S number 4 in Denver in 1931.





C&S 74 in late afternoon repose in Denver, 1931. Still has an "intermediate tender".

A trio of Lad Arend photos from the 1930s:




C&S 9 cresting Boreas Pass with the passenger train.





Number 68 resting at Como.





Number 69 in Clear Creek Canon.



Also see the photograph of the excursion train at Silver Plume (posted in the "Unseen Clear Creek" thread):

Jim,

your #69 picture was taken at Fall River with the Scrap train.  Great view for me, note the Mill visible behind the Headlight.  This could be the Donaldson since the upper structure fits more with the Sanborn map.  

I find it a great pity that these photographers that covered the scrapping kept on taking mindless 3/4 roster shots of the same motive power time and time again.  I often think they should have just stepped to the side and added in that interesting Mine or Mill.

Another eBay C&S photo, or rather a photo postcard:

http://www.ebay.com/itm/1913-RPPC-REAL-PHOTO-Postcard-BURRO-Pulling-Rail-Cart-FAIRPLAY-Colorado/222588394020?_trksid=p2060778.c100290.m3507&_trkparms=aid%3D111001%26algo%3DREC.SEED%26ao%3D1%26asc%3D20160727114228%26meid%3D5ab798985023428da34340be7f2eef5f%26pid%3D100290%26rk%3D1%26rkt%3D4%26sd%3D222588394020




The C&S Fairplay section foreman, Bill McKoe, and his "speeder" . . . postmark is November 17, 1913.

See if you can decipher the young section man's name (see eBay listing).

Fantastic photo, Jim!

Now there's a real railroad modeling challenge: the motive power for McKee's speeder.  Maybe static grass for donkey fur??

my guess for the young man's name:  Jimmie Thomson  --??

John, you have to have ALL your C&S reference materials at hand when making comments with this crowd.
I know I never do.

Bill McKee or Bill McKoe (that's what it looks like on the back of the postcard)??

Want to give the man his due and get his name right!

Jim: one of the pictures shows #69 with some sort of diamond shaped sign on the tender. Is there any
way to determine what is says or is?

  I have a photo of a work train along the Northern Pacific, replacing timbers
at a road crossing.  They have a sign just like this placed in the road to warn
motorists.  It read "MEN AT WORK".

I kind of that. Kind of interesting too  see. Maybe one of my Moguls will sport something like that. Best little detail to add.

Bear in mind that the photo is of the scrap train where all and sundry signs were picked up to adorn the pilots and tanks until there was no more track to pull.  Not an everyday occurrence and one that the Road Foreman would probably frown on the placement of such.  I was the fireman on the worktrain that pulled out the signals at Hukanui in the early 80's, the south end distant signal head came home with us on the rear cowcatcher.  Can be found alongside my Driveway today..

Yes, see the top photo for the steam line piped over the cab roof of the #58.

Chris: Thanks for pointing that out about the scrap train. I won't be putting signage on my locos. The pictures are kind of a bittersweet reminder of the end of an era. Nice to have pictures of equipment but sad to realize what was going on at that time.
