LS & MS Engine

This is a LS & MS Rogers Locomotive near a coal shoot loader. Notice the diamond style smoke stack on this beautiful engine. It is also interesting to note that it was Amasa Stone, president of the LS & MS railroad who was the first to burn coal in steam engines. This saved the railroad almost 16%- 25% in fuel costs! It was not long after Stones success and savings other railroads soon followed his lead. (Photo from the collection of Fritz Kuenzel)
