Great Western Steam Power
Great Western's Decapod, #90, was my dad's favorite subject for photos. Here are some scenes from Eaton sugar tramp duties. Number 90 still snorts and puffs steam as it hauls tourists today on the Strasburg Railroad in Pennsylvania. It's a favorite with Northern Colorado rail enthusiasts. It's wheel classification is 2-10-0, the name of which is Decapod.


Great Western's track crossed the UP main line some distance north of the UP Depot. GW trains often had to wait clearance for that crossing.
