Art Burrill's collection
This is a photo of the streamlined Steamer approaching the Eaton, Colorado depot at speed. Over the years, Art worked several times at Eaton. This one is one of my favorites. The passenger train being powered by the locomotive is most likely the Forty-Niner to California. Another train often powered by the streamlined steamer locomotives was the National Parks Special which went over Reas Pass on the now abandoned West Yellowstone Branch of Union Pacific in Idaho. This was a picturesque rail line.



This was taken from the cab of a locomotive, most likely near Julesburg, Colorado.
