Title

Coal and Sand

Subject

Steam Locomotive

Description

Coal and sand are received from this structure in East Syracuse, built in 1937. Carloads are brought in under the shed with the inverted-V roof and dumped into pits, from which conveyor belts lift the load up into the storage tanks over the fueling tracks, and gravity does the rest. Engine 4723 in the foreground is a high wheeled K-3 class Pacific type, just in off the Auburn Road's train no.4 from Rochester. The big hog with the "dog-ears" `behind her is Mohawk no.3043, in off an eastbound freight.
