Title

At the Botsford enginehouse

Subject

Steam Locomotive

Description

Alco U-2 7368 is pictured in the clutches of a hostler at Botsford enginehouse in Kalamazoo (note the engineer's backrest). This is another NYC town, albeit with some competition from the Pennsylvania's GR&I and a Grand Trunk branch up from their main line at Pavilion. A bevy of paper companies provides most of the traffic which keeps 7368 and friends busy around town and in congested little Botsford yard.
