Wow!

Wot a beautiful 4-8-4!

Thanks...

Thanks for the info on who took this photo, as it's one of the best in my collection. I would also like to give my best wishes to MR. Walker.

Chard Walker

I've known Chard since the early 1980s along with his wife Margaret through the Pacific Railroad Society. I, like so many, am saddened by his illness and wish him the very best through our prayers.

Chard Walker

Chard is ill and in the Hospital and needs everyone's prayers.

This is a Chard Walker photo taken at Summit probably scanned from a dupe slide in a set Tom Gildersleeve was selling many, many years ago. SK

I wouldn't be surprised if it was Chard Walker who took that picture.
He was the station operator at "Summit" in Cajon Pass.
For a while he lived in that yellow ex-funeral car named "Descanso" you can see in the background at the far left in this picture.
