Erie camelbacks

Postby nina » Thu Mar 21, 2013 3:40 am

I have a photograph of an Erie camelback #1078. I cannot find out who the builder was, a serial number, or when it was built. Any help would be appreciated. Thank you.

Please scan the picture into your computer and add to your next post. Maybe someone will recognize the key features to help identify it.

I forgot why I don't come here often. Thanks to the horrible adds I have been reminded of the problem here. Well the 2 paragraphs and the photo of the drawing of 567 wont be posted here. Nor the photos of the completed model locomotive. Why you annoy the people doing the posting with advertisements, I have no idea.
goodbye again.
