    Of all the photos I've seen of #10 I can't recall seeing a shot of the right side of the engine. I don't necessarily need to see that view if someone can tell me if it had an all weather window for the engineer. Thanks in advance Larry F.

    Larry - I have several shots of SLSF 10 showing the right side. A couple of my crummy Polaroid shots are attached (at Springfield, 1979). None of the other shots show an all-weather window installed either.

    Actually, that would be an unlikely accessory for service in a tropical climate as their utility was generally found during cold weather.

    Thanks Charlie and espescially Ken for the shots. I've got one of the Walthers engines and I decided to finally do something with it. I assumed it didn't have one but I wanted to be sure. Larry F.

    Any idea what ever happened to the #10? I read back in an old issue of R.R. that it had ended up in Alliance being converted to natural gas as their shop switcher.

    Check today's FA for another view. This was a coincidence by the way. I already had that one loaded up.

    Charlie, the location shows "unknown." I think this may be Blakely Island, Alabama? It looks like the idler flat car coupled to #10 that would have been used to switch cars on and off of the car ferry? Any other thoughts?
    Best Regards,

    I think you are right.

    I've seen pictures of BN #70 and it appears to not have one. The engine replaced the 45 tonner that worked the car float near Mobile, AL. If you want to know more about the unit, send me a message.
