Sumpter Valley Railway 2-8-2 No. 19 at Speed

Sumpter Valley Railway 2-8-2 No. 19 captured in a pan at 1/10th in Sumpter, Oregon at
the Sumpter Valley Railway on October 14th, 2018.  No. 19 is a narrow guage locomotive
bulit by Alco in 1920 for the original Sumpter Valley Railway  (pretty amazing).  The loco-
motive stayed on the roster until 1941 when it was sold to the Pacific & Arctic Railway &
Navigation Co. (WP&Y #80) at Skagway, AK.  A group of dedicated fans managed
to bring her, and sister No. 20, back from Alaska in 1977 to run on the rebuilt
Sumpter Valley Railway.  No. 20 sits outside by the engine house awaiting time
and funds for restoration.  Captured during Sumpter Valley's Railfan Photographer's
Weekend.

Great stuff.  But it almost feels like a well detailed HO model.
