May 19, 2014: Fill That Crankcase

"Slim" Rasmussen, destined  to be mayor of Tacoma, fills the crankcase of an NP f-unit at the D-street roundhouse.  I was about 10 or 11 when I took this photo with my Brownie Starlight camera and Payless 127 film.  This is my oldest surviving railroad negative.

You codger, you!!!

Okey, if we're three years apart in age, and you were 11 when you took the photo, then it was made in 1964.........the same year I made my first railroad photo.

But yours is a helluva lot more interesting than mine was. I LIKE this picture, fuzzy or not.
