Click here if you're inclined to forego reading the descriptive stuff and just want to rip through the photos. . . .

As you can see, this #456 is sporting "Footboards" on her tenders' end beam, a sure sign she's being used in at least occasional switching duty. ( O'course, on The Narrow Gauge, few engines were exempt from this duty. But then, not all of them were equipped the way you see this one. )

The lighting could have been better for this setup because the tender "patches" and rivets don't stand out as well as they ought to. Chalk it up to a new-to-me photo setup and too much hurry.

Nonetheless, it's still a halfway decent picture, surely a whole lot better'n a loco on a countertop. . . Or don't you agree ? ( You can vote on this y'know. . .
