Found this picture of crane locomotive while searching for something else today. Thought it was cool so I thought I would share it.



From the Harvey Graham railway?

Thanks,
Randy

Incredible! Great find, Randy.

Harvey Graham was probably some big wig with the railroad. Back then, it was not uncommon to name rolling stock for officials, investors, etc..

I thought that it was pretty cool. Has a kind of "Steampunk" look to it. I wish there had been more pictures of it. Kind of odd the way I found it. I was looking up some information on a saddle I bought and out of the blue was this crane locomotive picture. Anyway I thought it was cool enough to share. And with the name "Harvey" associated with it, it just has to be cool!!

A person just never knows what they will find while surfing the net!!

Thanks,
Randy
