NKP Mikado #587 Photos by George Stringer

In 1991 I moved from Pendleton, IN to Franklin, TN. Just before I moved I had the honor of being one of NKP 587's engine crew members. When we took 587 from Nobelsville through Tipton to Frankfort I had the priviledge of taking some pictures of the old girl that not many folks have seen.

Group 1 is Frankfort Roundhouse Pictures where we stored NKP 587 over night between the runs to Muncie on 6/29 & 30 and during the next week before we took off for Kokomo. Group 2 is various pictures along the route from Nobelsville, Tipton, Kokomo, Muncie, etc. The third group is some shots from Broadripple, Beachgrove, and early excursions.

The picture with people in it - Harold Starks on roundhouse floor with Russ Sunderland coming down the ladder after parking the "grand lady" in her former home, Frankfort Roundhouse, Stall No. 1. The first attempt in parking her failed as the tender was too long and we could not get the door closed. So, we moved her back out on the table and headed her for the long stalls on the other end of the roundhouse.
