Photographer's Note

Crossing the Animas River on High Bridge, made of steel girders and with a heavy wooden deck,it is 190 feet long. Whilst over the river the fireman and engineer alternately open the 'Blowdown' valve to clear sediment that has accumulated on the bottom of the boiler.this shoots a hot white mist from the sides of the locomotive as seen here.
