Remarks & Notes 
DM&IR 2-8-8-4 "Yellowstone" Engineer's Station. Here's a detailed view of the Engineer's Station on board DM&IR #227, a massive 2-8-8-4 Yellowstone Locomotive, located in the main exhibit hall of the Lake Superior Railroad Museum in Duluth, MN. Behold the very crowded panel of levers, valves and gauges, befitting a locomotive of this size and complexity. From here, the Engineer or "Engineman" operates this mighty beast. Directly in front of him is an overhead-type throttle. Below that, the power reverse. To the left are the train brakes and independent, along with the accompanying air gauges. Up at the top left, the Engineer has his own water glass. Water is so important that BOTH crew members actively watch it. Note the rather small front window in this cab. Quite honestly, the thing I most remember after my lengthy visit to this cab.....is just how little the Engineer and Fireman can see from their stations.
