welcome to north american locomotives feel free to add as many pictures as you want
I am very sorry to hear of Mr. Taylor,s death. When this photo was taken, I was a student at Billy Whitehurst's "Bolivar School of Aviation". I was studying for my Certified Flight Instructor Certificate. At the end of my training, I passed the FAA written test and flight exam and became a CFI. The following year, I returned to TN to get my CFI Instrument rating at Whitehurst's Jackson, TN facility.
That's a cool view of the coal dock too! I've been looking for a coal dock for quite some time. They are common up north and east of the Mississippi, but seems like they're hard to find westward. I don't know why that is. These were used to load coal into locomotives until around 1940. After that time, most train engines were diesel. Very cool to see this!
I like the PSA ... "METH = DEATH"
