O.K. I just had to show you guys a bituminous picture of these locomotives.

This shot was at the Crozer Creek Coal Co. in Elkhorn, Wv.

Very neat town to visit & the local people were great. This town is like it was locked in time.

These images are from two collections Buddy French as well as:
VT ImageBase (http://imagebase.lib.vt.edu/),

We have always liked this shot:

hey notice in the pic of lansfords, one axle has a coil spring and the other has leaf springs? hmm. i was also told by these guys this is a vulcan. they must be mistaken, also they think its 20 ton, its probably more like 6

Yes,, Chris you are correct on theLansford ideas about that mine locomotive.
Yes it is probably a 6 ton & yes it is a Baldwin Westinghouse.

My grandmother went to Atlantic City for vacation, so I said I would meet her there. I don’t gamble, so I went to see the elephant and photographed an abandoned casino.
