IC 5063, originally A&V 406. Built Baldwin 10/1907, renumbered by the IC in 1926. Scrapped 6/1946.
Any further info on this flood? What's going on in this photo?
Nice vintage photograph!!!!!!!
I have no idea where these flood photos were taken (I just uploaded a second shot of this engine in the floodwaters). I suspect that they were taken on the south end of the IC, deep in the heart of Dixie: the IC experienced regular flooding down there, and was a mover & shaker in getting levees arounf NO improved and swamps throughout the South drained and diked. I also uploaded another photo of a different flood in MS as an example of what the IC went through annually (I've got something like 20 different flood photos from the IC, all in different locations!)
