I love the antiquated appeal these photos have! "Superheater" sounds like an interesting contraption.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Thanks very much, Steven! The Superheater Co & the Baldwin Locomotive Works built the engines for the Narrow Gauge Durango & Silverton Railroad. These shots are of the 481 engine.

i like the rusty detail
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Thanks, Harry! Me too!
Nice details, Elizabeth. Due a refurb methinks, they could do it whilst shut down.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Thanks, Frank! A little spit & polish! smile

i love anything with typography and the patina is superb
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Oh, I know you do, Sherri! Lovely old thing isn't it!
I suppose one might say the City of Love hangs together by grease and rust, Elizabeth?
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Wow! That was a really great comment, Ginnie!!! Nicely thought out! smile

I love the "grease and rust", Elizabeth and I think it take a little more than "spit & polish" to make this shine again wink.
Thank you for the reply to Steven.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Thanks, Astrid! You are probably right... smile
You're welcome! smile

I do like the texture and colour.

Great shot. I gather the engine is still operating - probably too busy for a paint job.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Thanks, Louis! Yes it is!!
both of your factory setting photos are very interesting compositions of lines, shapes, textures.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Thanks so much, Alan! These are both of Engine 481 of the Durango & Silverton Narrow Gauge Railroad!

old bits of tin have an interesting appeal smile
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: They truly do, don't they! Thanks, Rob!
I'm really enjoying this series, I guess I look at the whole engine instead of looking at the smaller bit and pieces.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: I'm so pleased, Brian! Thank you!
WHat a lovely patina. I like the contrast of the second one. Friendship
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Great, isn't it! Thank you, Ruthie!
