Frank L Croston.: A serious loco, Ayush.
Jolie locomotive, on n'en voit plus maintenant.

The leading lines really give this depth. What a massive train!
Frank L Croston.: Thanks Bonnie, it is pretty big.
Number 12 can be proud to toot its own horn, Frank, and so can you.
Frank L Croston.: It must have made a great sound Ginnie, thanks smile

#12 looks like a working beast and I would love to hear and see her in full action. (I imagine too dangerous of setting trees on fire though)
Frank L Croston.: It seems a little sad for it just to sit there. As you say Astrid, steam engines can be a problem with fires.

I'd say number 12 is one heck of a thing Frank, with two sets of motion and cylinders. I wonder what they used it for?
Frank L Croston.: It was used in logging Chris, you cant see it but it has a wagon load of logs and a caboose.

I assume that this nw just a static exhibit rather than a working loco? I guess she was used in the logging industry - the wheel arrangement is good for going round tight curves, too. Definitely American - white-walled tyres smile
Frank L Croston.: Correct young man, outside the pioneers museum, Flagstaff.

A mighty machine Frank. I like the angle you took this from.
Frank L Croston.: That it is Andrew. Thank you.
J'aime vraiment cette époque !!
Frank L Croston.: Thank you Claudine.
An interesting locomotive Frank. Narrow gauge?
Frank L Croston.: It is, Bill. Probably narrow gauge, yes.
What a beast of machinery! Great photo against the pines smile
Frank L Croston.: Its a great loco, thanks Martin.
What a magnificent loco, rather strange wheel arrangement.
Frank L Croston.: It is Brian, somewhat Beyer Garrat like.
"Steam Locomotive No. 12 - The Pineapple Princess"...

Frank L Croston.: She certainly looks like it Peter.
