What you're seeing:
You're seeing the Eureka Springs Railway shortly after reaching Eureka Springs, which would place it in February 1883, or shortly thereafter. In the 35+ years I've amassed info on the North Arkansas, this is only the third pic of the original engine, Eureka Springs #1, I have ever seen. The other two pics of it having been published (and republished elsewhere) in the "North Arkansas Line" book by the late Dr. James Fair.
It is the ONLY pic of the complete orignal engine house I have EVER seen!
I am DIGGIN' that gallows turntable, neat engine house... and did you notice the depot grounds appear to be fenced? Also note the construction clutter hither and yon.
I know some of you will say "so what?"... but to me, this is a fantastic find.
I'm trying to establish contact with the North Arkansas enthusiast that posted this pic to see if I can obtain a larger resolution scan of same.
Oh how I wish it weren't so dad-gummed time-intensive to complete a route! There are so many routes I would love to complete!! (Might as well wish for operating turntables, too!)
Okay, break time's over... time for you to get back to your daily grind.
