D&H #412 basking in the yard (1983)

It's May 14, 1983, and C420 #412 is basking in the sun waiting for its next assignment in an unknown yard. Some interesting things in this shot include the seriously rusted boxcar on the right, and a (I think) blue wheel car peeking out on the left. Maybe this one. I have a fascination with the blue wheel cars for some reason, which is probably why I purchased this slide. The entire engine including the fuel tank is remarkably clean or sun-bleached, which makes me wonder if it was recently cleaned.


  1. That looks to be Oneonta yard, with the paint shed building on the left!
