More Photo Help

OK. Here is another photo I acquired a while ago. I am unsure of the location so I'll ask it here.

I am looking for any possibilities, but I think my answer may lie out of State (Edaville). So anyone with info or even a guess would be appreciated.

The consist and front number plate look similiar to footage taken by Gus Pratt, so my guess would be Edaville possibly on one of the first days of operation?

Hi Mike,

The photo is definitely taken at Edaville.  While it's hard to see, the lettering on the locomotive tank is the giveaway.  I sort of recognize the building in the left background.  Perhaps some one else can use it to positively identify the exact location.


Best Regards,
Glenn

Yes, Edaville.
The diamond to the machine shop is right under the drivers. Would be at the main station location.
