Hey GTT folks, I know there are some locomotive experts here and have been meaning to post a few pics of one that was on display in Canon (pronounced Canyon) City, CO. My sister bought us tickets to ride the Royal Gorge Railway last summer and I grabbed these pics while boarding.
I knew when I took these quick pics that this machine was unlike any steam locomotive I have ever seen but would like to know more about it. It has six vertical cylinders which rotate crankshafts and it appears the INVISIBLE wheels all are hooked together through driveshaft systems and it even looks like the coal car wheels may be drivers!
Anyway if y'all know anything about this oddity (to me anyway) I would sure like some more knowledge!
