SR&RL No. 18

Kind of a neat scene to model. The boys are filling the tender with coal the hard way or the only way they can. Note the one side was removed from the flat making it easier to unload. Looks like the whole crew is at work with this chore.
The next couple of posts we will view crews loading coal the hard way. Most of the larger railroads had coal towers but not these  little two footers.  This is a photo I have recently acquired. SR&RL engine no. 18 at Strong, Maine. This engine was SRR no. 2 built by Baldwin in 1893...George Dutka
