    I am looking for a photo of either the NW 1710 or the DRGW 3556. This is actually the same locomotive. The 1710 was sold to the DRGW which then rr numbered it to the 3556. If anyone has a photo of this locomotive you you be willing to share it with me? Thanks!

    I looked through two N&W books I have without luck. Neither does the N&WHS doesn't offer photos of the 1710. The 1710 was one of only six Y2a Class on the N&W, a small count amongst the great many others in the Y Class. If I think of other resources, I'll take a look.

    I tried my fav spot, the Denver Public Library Western History Collection, and struck out. It usually has great view from the likes of W.H Jackson, Robert Richardson, Otto Perry, and others, but not for this engine. I did however find:

    3554: https://digital.denverlibrary.org/digital/collection/p15330coll22/id/53271/rec/1 https://digital.denverlibrary.org/digital/collection/p15330coll22/id/53268/rec/2

    3553: https://digital.denverlibrary.org/digital/collection/p15330coll22/id/53273/rec/3

    https://digital.denverlibrary.org/digital/collection/p15330coll22/search/order/title/ad/asc for more searches. You may find more engines of the L-109 class.

    Is the N&W 1711 close enough, or was there something unique about the 1710?

    Another of the 1711 if Point's suggestion will work.
