1916 photos from Railway and Locomotive Engineer
1915 Railway and Locomotive photos
Looking at the wheel lathes, sometime later I think the Elgin, Joliet & Eastern was a pioneer in developing a wheel lathe that could be used without having to remove the wheelset from the car. Quite the efficiency gain. Neat too to see the L&NE 0-8-0 that burned both bituminous and anthracite. Never knew about this.

Thanks for posting these Rick, such amazing engineered stuff from the last turn of the century! You never know what you'll see in these pages!
Fun to see that view of the MILW at Mobridge.
The photograph at the AT&SF's Canyon Diablo, AZ bridge is really neat, though probably farcical with Navajos about. Some 25 years ago, my wife and I drove a rental car to this bridge on a harrowing route. This is rugged and remote rock-strewn country, not likely a spot anyone could live on.
This is probably the 1882 bridge. The AT&SF opened the current two-track bridge in 1946.

That Forney pictured above is interesting. I am thinking of the Maine 2 Foot types, then we are seeing this enclosed cab version. But looking at the headlight, cow catcher and bell placement, that it is apparently intended to run bunker first, is really very different.
