Photo by Keith Ardinger

She sure is going to look good when all said and done!

Might have to add an extra step for Sammy's new knee though!!! (Just kidding of course)

The resemblance is pretty scary, Les, did you copy the kid's hat when you painted Audrey's number plate back in North Judson ???

And thanks to you, Cody !!!

We do not know the time of this picture or the photographer's name, but the original image and publications rights belong to Kieth Ardinger, who graciously allowed me use of it for non commercial purposes only, with credit to his private archive.

I'm guessing this was taken in the early 50s at the phosphate processing plant in Coronet. Other than the missing parts, the only difference I notice between the picture and Audrey's present configuration is that she now has plywood in place of the wainscoating in her cab sides.

I'm still seeking more photos or any kind of information on either #6 or the Coronet Phosphate industrial railroad operations. Will be happy to pay costs of duplication and mailing.

Take Care & WORK SAFE

A very similar steamer was recently pulled out of a park in Bellingham WA and moved to the Northwest Railway Museum in Snoqualmie WA: http://www.bellinghamherald.com/news/ar ... 37226.html

From what I can tell, the Bloedel engine is probably pretty similar to what my #6 looked like before they added the back truck from Southern Iron & Equipment Company.
