    Lima Locomotive Works, Graham County #1925 Shay

    A picture I took, I guess you could say just in time for the contest.

    Milepost 31

    Railroads use different kinds of mileposts. This cast-iron relic came from the Baltimore & Ohio branch from North Vernon Indiana, (hence the NV 31) to Louisville, Kentucky (the other side has L 27 cast into it). [​IMG]

    My home phone number is of a particular steam loco, but that's not the intent of this contest!
    Anyone know where the -844 exchange is? Imagine having a phone number of 844-3985!:)
