  • It is a great photo for 1875. I reproduced it for use with the Rhode Island Railroad Museum at Kingston Station. If you look closely you see the conductor standing next to the engineer, the station agent, the buggy driver and his horse, a wood burning engine, and the wind mill for the water pump at the rear.
