Long Before
Author: espee4ever

The parents of the man on the footboards had yet to be born that day back in 1915 when this 40-ton narrow gauge Heisler came to the W. H. Eccles Lumber Company. One hundred and seven years later it holds the honor of being the last wood-burning Heisler, framed on the 23rd of last month on The Sumpter Valley Railroad.

Rode that engine on a few hundred feet of track about 50 years ago, man time flies.

That is an impressive image, no two ways about it.

I'm more familiar with West Side No 3, now No. 2 operating at Felton, CA on the Roaring Camp and Big Trees Narrow Gauge Railroad.

The Eccles engine is the "modern" version of West Side 3.
