    This old 2-8-0-war horse has finally had its day; she will just sit out the rest of her days in the knowledge that she served her country well.

    Neat picture, Shamus. Looks like she's been out of service for a good while. Badger Creek must not be to strapped for cash, or they would have used the coal in the tender for something else.

    Shamus, great photo

    Btw, that engine would look just right sitting in front of an old neglected caboose I have. :D :D

    Now there's an advanced case of "ferroequine dermatitis".

    By the look of the exterior, the coal is probably the only thing holding the tender together.

    No Casey, not the torch. After what she has been through in the last 6 months :rolleyes: er years,:D I couldn't do that to her. She will just fade away one day.
