Mystery Loco 153

Post by chnhrr » Tue Apr 21, 2009 10:40 pm

I recently came across this picture that was for sale on E-bay. It claimed to be New Haven electric, but I don’t recognize it as such. I though it might have belonged to the Butte and Anaconda or the CN, but this may not be right either. Is this a Baldwin unit as well? I haven’t found anything on No. 153. Any information would be appreciated.

Thanks Scott

I thought it might have been a CN unit with the red windows, but I didn’t seem to find anything in my books or on the net. Mystery solved and job well done.
