It *is* an interesting picture, but every loco present -on which you
can count the wheels, that is- appears to be a standard inside-framed
4-4-0 "American" type.

If you are bored one day, have a look at the complete site. There are some
wonderful pictures on all subjects scattered all over the place. You will
soon find that your one day will be 2 or 3 days ago.


Can't beat those old plate cameras for resolution! This looks like maybe
taken on a 16x20.

And, oh yeah, can easily lose a couple days on this site ...

I have not read of any crashes.

The final video of Mt. Tamalpais at the link above, done by a
teacher and some students and running 9:30, says that during the 34
years of operation there was one fatality and several critical injuries.
It does not state whether these were passengers or workers.
For comparison, Disneyland has had a number of fatalities during its
50+ years of operation, though nearly all that I can remember are due to
stupidity on the part of the deceased, such as taking off the seat belt
and standing up on the Matterhorn ride.

These videos show the damage done after the earthquake.

Is also after the earthquake but from a different source.

shows one of the oddest lines ever built, this video shows the modern day
reproduction fitted with a diesel engine.
There is archive video at http://www.britishpathe.com/record.php?id=11629

Apologies for going OT.


Rail is decidedly ON topic! Thanks for the links.

It *is* an interesting picture, but every loco present -on which
you can count the wheels, that is- appears to be a standard
inside-framed 4-4-0 "American" type.

Sorry, I meant manufacturers.
Another slightly different view.

Really nice close up of General J.C. Robinson from 1865.
http://www.shorpy.com/node/5979?size=_original

Wow, that harbour scene in the background..


Another harbour scene for you.
http://www.shorpy.com/node/6004?size=_original


Appears to be a Steam Tug at the end of the wharf.


It does appear so, but my eyes keep getting drawn to the "smudge" by the
gun carriages. Presumably that's someone moving around.

is it one, or two tugs?
thanks for the picture !!

Groet, salut, Wim.

It's one steamer apparently, named Relief, although there is another message
saying that there are two steamers and Relief is actually the aft end of a
paddle steamer

Thank the people at Shorpy for the work they are doing, but I am glad that
you enjoyed the picture as much as I did.

Damn it! Found two pictures of the General from 1964.

http://www.shorpy.com/node/7446

Also a pic of Atlanta from 1864.
http://www.shorpy.com/node/4759

Richmond in ruins from 1865
http://www.shorpy.com/node/2457?size=_original
(There is what looks to be the remains of a train near the top right hand
corner)

Damn! That's another day gone.
