Shark Tank

It is May 1969 in Brownsville, Pennsylvania. Monongahela No. 1205 is still painted in its New York Central paint scheme and along with MRY No. 1210 is one of the two identifiable Baldwin RF16A Sharks.

This is one of my few slides showing Sharks in NYC colors. Notice the engineer’s windshield on 1205.

Both the 1205 and 1216 have survived and are locked up for safe keeping in a building on the Escanaba & Lake Superior in Michigan. The 1210 was, hopefully, the last Shark to be scrapped.
