Crab Orchard & Egyptian steam engine 5

While waiting for steam pressure to build in engine 17, I had time to look around and photograph some of the other nearby equipment. The five spot was built by Porter in 1946. The engine began life as a 2-4-2 tank engine. In 1974 the engine was rebuilt. The tank over the boiler was removed and a tender was added. Below is a closer look at two of the CO&E emblems on piggyback trailers. Disk 111
