Ron V. Nixon Collection Image Record - RVN12144

Caption: "This is an air powered locomotive, which was powered by an air supply stored in the large tank that sits where the boiler normally stood. The air tank was filled from wayside air that came from a stationary compressor. At one time a locomotive similar to this was used at the Brainerd tie treating plant. This same style of locomotive could have been used as a shop transfer engine (i.e.., Shop goat.)"
