This class T steam locomotive was one of the five small tank engines built by W.G.Bagnall Limited of England in 1927. With plate frames and pony trucks, they were the first British-built engine to have steel fireboxes and shipped completely erected for use by the Federated Malay State Railways in 1929.

Used for dock service, it was stationed at Singapore and Port Swettenham (nor Port Kelang) until 1964. Its full weight was 31 tons with 1.5 tons of fuel and 750 gallons of water.

This is another mountain narrow gauge line in the south of the country. This line runs to the old British hill station of Ootacamund, better known as Ooty. The Raj used to retire here from Madras to get away from the heat of the summer. These locos are Swiss designed.

val.jpg

May 13th, 2002. Headed out at 8am to Mission and drove up looking at possible photo locations knowing on this fast track with a slow road only one shot I would ever get. Eventually just took a long shot down a straight that would be at speed and boy was she moving at this point.

This is a shot the old station in Hammond, LA. It actually looks a little better than this photo taken on an overcast day by a novice with his new digital camera. Our train was making two stops at many of the stations because it was so long - four or five coaches, two sleepers, Lounge car, Diner, transition sleeper (used for the crew), two baggage cars and four or five express freight cars.
