David Digerness Photo

Steve Headford


Hoping someone can help identify this engine. Seems to have everyone stumped.
It was photographed by David Digerness.

Any help would be appreciated.

I'd take a wild stab at this,
you could be looking at UPD&G s.g. 4-4-0 #17, reno #585.
Maybe, maybe not?

David Digerness wasn't around during Link&Pin days to take the picture, or was it taken by his Father Edward John?

Mineral Belt 3 states E.J. Digerness born 1895, and as D.S. Digerness littered his books with "David.S. Digerness collection" probably taken by somebody else.

Agreed, it has U.P. family resemblance. Seems there is a whole lot of corn in the background. I'll guess it's Kansas Pacific #17, reno #656? But Uncle Rick should be able to provide the definitive answer. Rick?

The photo credits him on the back. Possibly part of his family collection.
After some investigating I was wondering if this was Union Pacific, Denver & Gulf Railway #17.

I'm thinking that Chris is correct based on what I found below.
