Wow - love this shot! Great looking engine (sister being restored in Alaska) and to have captured pulling an actual Army train - just amazing! You've made me an Army steam fan! Imagine the draw should a tourist line come by a few of theses passenger cars. This engine survives at a US Army Museum in VA. Thanks for sharing!

Correct me if I'm wrong but these engines were built to fit within European loading gauge for post-war reconstruction use and could be fitted with buffer and screw couplings if necessary.

I'm currently stationed at Ft Eustis, this has to be the coolest photo I've seen from this area yet.

What a treat. Love this one. Thank you for sharing this with a big steam fan.

You mentioned, 'Army has steamed up a couple'. If you got pictures of the other one, I'm hoping you can share it.

Was stationed at Ft. Monroe (USCONARC) in nearby Hampton, Va.; couldn't make it to Ft. Eustis that day due to ceremonies and parades on-post.

AMAZING, I had no idea they were running as late as 1970 there. I finally got to visit the museum there recently and it's great they have a halfway decent collection of rolling stock there.
