Description

"Sugar Plantation narrow guage Rail Road engine house tender of engine (steam) no. 8 in center stall" From "Darkroom Soldier": "Locomotive #8. During pre-war farming, these engines hauled raw sugar cane harvested on the southwest plains to the mill. To a soldier in the invading 503rd Parachute Company, this 'narrow-gauge railroad...guided our advance. It was obvious to us that the railroad had not been used during the Japanese occupation....Grass grew up around the ties and the tracks were dull...."
