Steeple Cab Locomotive
Short line and interurban railroads flourished during the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Though the bulk of their traffic was passengers, distribution of local and mainline freight was also important. Delivery was most often accomplished by small electric locomotives. From the streets of Brooklyn and Kansas City to the fields of California's Central Valley, these diminutive locomotives labored mightily for nearly 100 years.
