Hard to believe this shot was not taken in 1875, if it weren't for the streetlight. The Eureka was purchased new from Baldwin by the Eureka & Palisades R.R. and ran between those two points in Nevada. Found derelict, burned, and abandoned some 15 years ago, it has been meticulously restored to close to original condition and operates as the oldest original steam locomotive in the world.
