Old Deadwood Train Engine History Pictures from Ed Morris

"Hope you enjoy this pictures of Deadwood train engines. Pictures that are sample engines are not all from the Deadwood/Edgemont Line." Ed Morris DHS54

Steam switch Engine #1510.

Diesel switch Engine #9145 (sample) replaced #1510.

Steam passenger Engine #331. No replacement as stopped service.

Mallet (no visible # and is sample).

Double header Mallets.

Steam Mallet #4100. Derailed heading toward Kirk Hill. My Dad and I went there and took this picture.

Diesel Unit #123 replaced Mallets.

~~ I believe the Passenger Engine #331 took the DHS-55 Class to Denver on their classic Skip Day. The Mallets were called in to push heavy loaded cars up the steep Slime Plant siding. DD

Enjoyed looking at your photos, especially CB&Q 9145. I believe it was renumbered as 91 following the merger with NP, GN and SPS. It served as the Deadwood switch engine until the line was abandoned in the early 1980's. I ran the engine for several weeks during each of three summers. It was a good old SW-1, built in the late 1930's. It eventually found its way to shortline service. I would not be surprised to learn that it still operates.
