yea i guessed those first 2 were from around there with the standard gauge mine road. most of the stuff around hazleton, at least jeddo and drifton were standard gauge inside the mine as well! the pump room underground for jeddo's breaker has access to an old rock tunnel and some old gangways still tracked with 60lb standard gauge rail. ill have to see if i have any photos of that......

Great photos! As for Photo no. 4 it appears to be a Pennsylvania Railroad Class D locomotive, although I cannot say exactly which model it is, other than that the drivers are too large for it to be a D16. The location seems familiar and I think it might be somewhere in Altoona, PA as it seems like Ive seen photos of other Pennsy locomotives in the same place. But I could be wrong.
