Photo of the Week
December 5, 2004  

     This week's Photo of the Week is a scanned image of an old colorized post card.  I really love this old photo as it shows an American Locomotive (Cooke Works), I.C.C. Class 201-300 pulling a passenger train.  Most of the old photos and post cards you see usually have this type locomotive pulling dirt cars out of the cut.  These locomotives were real work horses.  This is the same class locomotive as "Old 299" that used to be on display by the Balboa Train Station.
      The post card doesn't give the location of where this photo was taken.  The caption just says, "Train on the road to Panama".

Long live the history of our Panama Canal Zone!
