Karl's Northern came from Dick Thomas - see next picture down. Jack did the refurbishing.


Here's Karl's Northern years ago when it belonged to Dick Thomas. Dick is said to have 38 locomotives to his credit over his 40 years in the hobby. He was on the cover of the 1968 issue of Live Steam. Dick recently passed away.


Southern Pacific Lines No. 2486.











At left, Lou and Bill swap WWII stories. Lou was a civilian working for the British Air Force keeping all manor of steam equipment running, and Bill "flew a desk" in the U.S. Air Force as the war was ending.
