Above you see one of the K-27's we produced in 1999. This is the number 461 as
she might have appeared around 1939 - 1941. Still in evidence are the "external
lubricator lines" on the smokebox. They got rid of these right around 1941 when
they began replacing them with the cab mounted "Bullseye" Lubricators. It
appears that the idea behind these lines was to warm up the lube oil so it
would flow better. But they were undoubtedly a maintanance problem due to their
partial placement inside the smokebox with the smoke, soot and cinders
traveling through it all the time.
If you like, you can simply travel through these pages as time allows by clicking on the locomotive icon at the bottom of each page. (They're in no particular order, front to back, so if you click on the locos you'll get a real rounded out idea of where we've been coming from over the years.)
More photos will be added as we find the time, so please stop by again. (Don't forget to click on the "Refresh Button" on your browser so you get the latest stuff...)
