The climb nearly over, the Flying Scotsman pauses for the picture just outside Redmond Cut with her pops whistling a firm indication of ample steam pressure. By the looks of that coal bunker, the remaining 58.95 miles to San Francisco are the last on this Western trek. 9-27-72 Ted Benson. Nov-Dec 1971 Mileposts.

Deep in the heart of the Altamont Hills, LNER 4472 works out of Midway’s forest of power lines, her three cylindered exhasts rebounding off the barren Coast Range. 9-27-71 Ted Benson

PR-207_thumbnail.jpg
Power, speed, grace, and style. What more can be said about the center driver of LNER 4472? The bicycle-like construction, such a departure from the typical American speed queen of the 1930’s, lend an almost fragile appearance to the locomotive. But once upon a time the “fragile” beast hit 100MPH and I’ll bet she could do it again. 9-27-72 (Oakland) Ted Benson

STEAM LOCOMOTIVE NO. 233 Built at Sacramento in January of 1882 as the 16th locomotive constructed by the Central Pacific Railroad, this steam locomotive weighs 103,000 pounds and operates on 145 pounds (per square inch) of boiler pressure. This is one of only two Central Pacific Railroad engines still in existence. Given to the Pacific Locomotive Association by the City of Oakland, the engine was moved in 1974 from its Oakland Auditorium display site to the Association’s railroad museum at Point Richmond near the Richmond-San Rafael Bridge. Restoration of the venerable locomotive commenced under the guidance of Peter Rodgers, Superintendent of Motive Power for the museum. Two years of work totaling thousands of volunteer man hours were required to renovate this priceless locomotive. Now fully restored, the No. 233 joins six other old steamers on the Associations Castro Point Railway museum grounds.
