A SP 4-6-0 in the Mole Shot by Richard Steinheimer
Author: MartyBernard

Found this of SP 183 in with the photographs the late Key Route Ken sent me.

And the photographer wrote this on the back of the 8X10, " Return to Richard Steinheimer    Oakland Pier   c. 1949-50"   Thought you'd like to see that too.  Scroll down!

[EDIT]  Note, the tender reads NWP (Northwestern Pacific Railroad), not SP.


Enjoy,
Marty Bernard

That's an NWP 4-6-0!  A rarity at the Mole I would guess.

It was the numbers on the cab that were rthe initial giveaway - not SP number style!

How old was Steinheimer in 1949 and where was he living? I think he was a photog for the San Rafael Independent by 1958 or so and pretty young mid twenties I would guess by the pics I've seen.

Love that picture.  It's in Harre Demoro's  "Southern Pacific Bay Area Steam" book.  I wore that book out back when it was one of the few books covering SP steam.
​It is sad that one of the NWP 180 class wasn't saved.  They were good looking loco's.

My favorite Stein photo is of an SP 4-6-2  rear lit  and taken from the tender end on that same outside track along the edge of the mole.  Been published many places and it's a killer.
