Porter mining locomotive on display in South Dakota.

This photohraph was taken near The Chief Crazy Horse Monument in South Dakota during June of 1984. This locomotive is a small industrial type steam locomotive built by the Porter Locomotive Works in the Early 1900's. This engine was used on a Small Mining Railroad, and was later acquired by a Private owner, who later lovingly restored it cosmetically and displayed it for all to see with proper shelter
from the weather and natures elements. I do not remember the town this was in...but it was definately a pleasant vacation surprise for this Chicago area Railfan to see.
