Barb. I enjoyed the pics of trains so much. My bro.in law, Roy clay was an N & W engineer based at Wilcoe and usually worked out of Ieager. The one of the new diesel (with you Dad in the photo) I think that same engine was the first of the new ones I saw. Thanks, for posting them.

Oh, I just love this picture. Daddy has just lit his cigarette and is putting the pack back in his shirt pocket. He would always stand with his weight on one leg and the other slightly in front! Funny how you remember the little things about your parents!
