Hi All;

I wonder if any of you might have this book. I would like to know how well the 2500 Class 2-6-6-4s are represented in it in photos if at all.

Seaboard Air Line Railway album By: Albert M Langley; W Forrest Beckum; C Ronnie Tidwell Publisher: North Augusta, S.C. : Union Station Pub., 1988.

I would be much obliged if one of our members can offer any source for photographs of any of these R1/R2 locomotives as I am having great difficulty in locating any as Seaboard locos.

Thank you in advance for any assistance you may offer.

Cheers,

Rory

Thanks Jerry;

That is an interesting site. I had no trouble getting there, and working the navigation.

I appreciate your help here.

Cheers,

Rory

How 'bout a couple of links (sorry, you may have to copy and paste part of it to make it work right):

SAL R-1 2500 http://www.webpraxis.ab.ca/cgi-bin/steam/_mpd/imgview.cgi/us/sal? 2500.jpg

SAL R-1 2503 http://www.webpraxis.ab.ca/cgi-bin/steam/_mpd/imgview.cgi/us/sal? 2503.jpg

SAL R-2 Drawing http://www.webpraxis.ab.ca/cgi-bin/steam/_mpd/imgview.cgi/us/sal? 7505.jpg

A great website (though difficult to navigate) to find photos through is the Virtual Railroad.

http://www.webpraxis.ca/vrr/index.htm

From VR's homepage click on the "Steam Roster" link, clicking on the "+" icon in front of the names choose the USA on the country page and then (again clicking on the "+" icon) select whatever letter your railroad starts with to view an index of photos that can be found on the web.

There are photos on the web, finding them is the problem... but the Virtual Railroad site is a great place to start, if you can get past the site's quirks (which is why I mention clicking on the "+" icon and not the "network" icon... the other just doesn't work on my computer).

Rory:

I have a copy and will be glad to make copies of any photos, etc. Another source is the Prince book on the SAL-it is available from the Society.

Please contact me off line so I can get an address to mail the copies to.
