Time marches on: EL 315

It is a shame that old locomotives aren't given a bit more respect, isn't it? This is a side view of the nose of the locomotive Erie Lackawanna #315 at Galena, KS; directly behind Mi Torito restaurant.
EL S1 315 is a long way from home as it heads a flat car and burned out UP caboose on a very short stretch of track in front of an industry located on Clark Rod just northeast of Galena KS. The Alco used to be located downtown but was moved up here for display within the last several years.
