P&P Logging

Going through more pictures of the KV&O, I came across some oddities. Dates on pictures say April 4, 1941. This made not look odd to some people but the engine and cab pictured are both from P&P Logging. Equipment from P&P Logging was hardly even seen by the public eye let alone any pictures. Loco 127 started out as a 2-6-6-2 with no tender. In later years the loco got a new tender and the rebuilt cab. The caboose is a shorty 2 truck cab. Not surprised it isn't lettered. P&P was known for not putting numbers or lettering on its equipment. Additional note, both locomotive and cab picture still survive today. The locomotive pulls a tourist train from time to time and the cab is on display. It probably will not see the rail again unless it is fitted with roller bearing trucks.
