On The Cover

Railfan & RailroadThe locomotive that came the longest distance to attend Spencer was Doyle McCormack’s "Nickel Plate 190." The locomotive, one of just two Alco PA’s in the United States, takes a spin on the turntable on May 29, 2014, the first day of the “Streamliners at Spencer” event. See page 28 for a special report on this once in a lifetime experience. MICHAEL T. BURKHART PHOTO
