MILW steam double header ... 'semi' rescued negative

Figured the subject was good enough even if the 'rescue' (pic 2) wasn't ...

Great image. Thanks for the "rescue" effort. It's so good to see an image like this, even if the quality is not the best.

Considering the original - First-class rescue.

Once again, like the cab forward photo I spent a few minutes playing with it while dinner cooked.  This one needed more help than I could give it due to focus around the second engine.

I like how the MILW hung their bells on the smokebox face, fireman's side.  Very unique.

Definitely worth saving since we'll never get a repeat.  I wonder where this photo was taken ?  Illinois, Wisconsin, or Iowa I suppose.  It's pretty flat but double track.  I like the lead "Mike" with the offset bell.  The Milwaukee probably offset it to accomodate a red emergency light like the S2 Northern following it.  Some L-3 class had them and. some apparently never could afford them.  The addition of the six wheel trucked large tender on the "Mike" was probably repurposed from a scrapped 2-6-6-2 from out west, although they would have to be converted from oil to coal, for a short few years of use. Thanks for your effort.   Craig Hanson {hawkinsun}
