St. Louis-/San Francisco / Eagle Picher ~ 1918 by 


The Museum of Transportation, St. Louis, Missouri USA, has numerous locomotives and train cars of various types. They also have an indoor antique auto museum.

Locomotive # 1621 is a 2-10-0 Decapod type freight locomotive (ten drive wheels on axles making a five drive wheel unit) built by Baldwin Locomotive Works for Imperial Russia which contracted with Baldwin in 1915 for some 1200 locomotives. Twenty of these were purchased by the “Frisco” and changes were made to meet American standards including widening the wheel tread to accommodate the 3 1/2 gauge difference. Number 1661 has 52" drivers and weighs 362,100 pounds.

I thought a steam locomotive should have smoke coming out of its stack so I joined the image of #1621 with this image ☺

Both Images taken with Nikon D40X

    Cool composite, very well done…Bravo!

  • Thank you. I could have never gotten this far without your help. The new CS5 makes selection much easier with complex images like this but the free transform, inverse selection and perspective crop all are thanks to you.
