We’re chugging our way back to 1900 with this week’s #ThrowbackThursday!
This photograph shows the Chicago, Burlington & Quincy Railroad engine #1945 in Crawford, Nebraska. It served as the pusher engine up the Belmont Hill and through the Belmont Tunnel.
This image is owned by the Crawford Historical Society and Museum. In partnership with the Crawford Public Library, the Crawford Historical Society and Museum digitized a number of images in the Crawford area in the late 1800s and early 1900s.
