    #14 History: Steam engine #14 is a 2-8-0 Baldwin built in 1913. The locomotive was purchased by Fillmore & Western in December 1999 from Dodge City Railroad in Dodge City, KS. Approximately 50 volunteers were involved in the restoration of #14. Restoration was completed in December 2010 with a special commemorative journey on January 2, 2011.

    #101was built as a F7A by Electro-Motive in December 1949 as C&NW 4083A. She was rebuilt for suburban service in 1959 and renumbered 413 in December 1971. She was sold to RTA on December 31, 1977, and leased back to C&NW. She was retired on May 2, 1983, and sold to Naporano Iron & Metal in 1985. She was resold to Rails Diversified in March 1985 as 413. She was then sold to Winchseter & Western, and then to Maryland Midland as 101. She was later sold to Short Line Enterprises [the owner of Fillmore & Western] as FWRY 101.

      A great comparison of something old and something even older. I miss seeing new uploads from you. I hope all is well.

      Trains & Trails Thank you.
      My car has been in and out of the shop so much lately that I no longer trust it on out of town trips. Also, my Nikon D60 stopped working and I need to get it repaired, I have a little point-and-shoot Canon but it has it's problems too. I have also been taking care of my grandson while my daughter is at work, I did take him with me for local shots when the Nikon was working. I'm sure one of these days all will work out and I'll be able to get out and photograph trains again.
