When I was about 4 years old, my Dad got involved in organizing the International Union of Life Insurance Agents. One of his fellow organizers was a man named Bill Harper. The Harpers had a son my age as well as a daughter my sister's age. A close friendship developed. Jimmy and I played together regularly and went from TootsieToys to Lionel Trains to scale model trains to photographing trains. In 1946 we both got cameras. I had a 116 box camera and he had a 130 folding camera. In August, Jim and another friend went to the Twin Cities while I went to northern Wisconsin with my family. One of the pictures that Jim took with that old 130 camera was this shot of Great Northern 2580 leaving town. The 2580 was Class S-2 and was built by Baldwin in February 1930, #61216. It was retired in April 1958 and scrapped in 1963.

Thine, O LORD, is the greatness, and the power, and the glory, and the victory, and the majesty;

for all that is in the heavens and in the earth is Thine;

Thine is the kingdom, O LORD,

and Thou art exalted as head above all.

I Chronicles 29:11
