The wayback machine is taking us to the late 1950s for an image from the camera of the late Ed Treesh and now part of the collection of Robert Farkas. Cherry River Boom & Lumber 9 is on an excursion train in Richwood, West Virginia, in June 1958.

Here are two Ed Treesh photos and their closer crops. They were taken on a Cherry River Boom and Lumber fan trip at Richwood, West Virginia in June 1958. The top two photos show CRB&L No. 3, a GE 70 ton switcher.

The next two photographs feature bay window caboose No. 9.
