NCNG #7 photo.

Hers is the rarely-photographed #7 on the rip at Grass Valley. My guess is '34 or 35.It was in service for a relatively short time. From the Ferrell collection.

I've been secretly adding things to the Image Gallery and not announcing them like I do. :mrgreen:

So I'll announce this one: C&C #4 "Churchill".

What a difference ~45 years makes.
A special thanks to Dennis Burke for sharing some of his images with us.

I certainly would not mind having her sitting in my garden like that!

The location of the photo of the "Churchill" is at Candelaria, Nevada. A larger (uncropped) version of this view is in Stanley Paher's book Nevada Ghost Towns and Mining Camps. The entire view shows the front yard/garden and the front of the house.
