Alco #101 Samoa

"Took a look at this photo on the Oil-Electric site, which also includes color photos of the two Hammond steamers, and it looks like the photographer was there (with better equipment) about two to three weeks after I was."

"Mitch/Robert - I sent Richard Todd a video of my trip on the Hammond line taken from an old 8mm movie although I haven't heard if he has received it yet. I can send this out to you also if you can give me an email address. It appears the top of…"

Alco #101 Samoa

"Mitch...I should have added that the S-3 & S-2 ALCo's are very similar.  The S-2 has nine doors on the hood while the S-3 has only 8.  Of greater concern is that every other S-1 thru S-4 that I have ever seen all had the standard…"

"Mitch...I presume that you have Joe's "California Locomotives:  ALCO & GE".  On P-21 there is a good "roster" shot of S-3 #101.  It is lettered "H.L.Co." on the cab side with a Hammond diamond…"

"Jim,  Mr Strapac insists that is an S-3 locomotive.  But since no S-3 is available in N, I'm going to do a rendition with an S-2. Do you recall the colors on top of the locomotive?  I assume the lower area was black.  "

"Sean - Your note is fortuitous as I have a small 8mm movie of the ride that I made with an old Kodak camera which I would like to donate to the THA. I should be coming through Eureka this summer, around the 26th or 27th of July, so possibly you can…"

James, your photos are priceless! I'm so glad you didn't throw them away! I made a similar trip in 1958 but only a few of my photos turned out. The pictures tell a facinating story of the NWP in 1958-9. The water car will be a new addition to my model railroad. Welcome to the site. I hope you can find more photos to add. They will increase all our understanding of our favorite road.
