The Hesston Steam Museum. Hesston Indiana USA. Sunday, September 12th, 2010. a photo by Eddie from Chicago on Flickr.
I took this photo, during My September 2010 visit to the Hesston Steam Museum in northwest Indiana.
Railroad museums, are great places to photograph details on vintage locomotives and railroad equipment for reference purposes.
This is the Lima Locomotive Works builders plate on the museum's 3 foot guage Shay logging locomotive from the New Mexico Lumber Company.
This powerful and very practical industrial steam locomotive, was built by the Lima Locomotive Works of Lima Ohio, in November of 1929. This was also the "Last" narrow guage steam Shay type locomotive that was built by Lima.
