Great Western Steam Power
Great Western had several smaller locomotives, this 2-8-0 is #51. Here Art caught it west of Eaton with a typical Sugar Tramp consist. GW51 also survives, running tourist trains on the Fillmore and Western Railroad in Southern California.



This is not Art's photo, but it will suffice until I get one of Art's photos of GW #75 online. The 75 was a slightly larger 2-8-0 than 51. It's a star of Hollywood, being numerous movie and TV shows. My personal favorte is "Breakheart Pass" which was filmed on the Camas Prairie Railroad in Idaho. This photo is from the Colorado RR museum collecion. #75 survives today on the Heber Valley railroad in Utah, again hauling tourists, like it's two sisters of Sugar Tramp heritage.
