My Grandfather was assigned as an engineer on a work train on the Key West Extension from May, 1908 to April, 1912 and then drove the pilot train ahead of Mr Flagler's train on Jan. 22, 1912. He was then assigned to a water train between Homestead and Key West until April 1913 and never went to Key West again as he was reassigned to Miami - New Smyrna Beach .
I found the photo in my Grandfather's estate items. The Photo was taken of a gravel train unloading gravel in the Keys.

***** IMPORTANT *****
The third paragraph states the photo is of a gravel train. In my haste in listing with Turbo Lister I used another listing that does have the gravel train and this was an oversight on my part. The Photo is of the morning after the 1909 Hurricane as is stated on the back of the photo. I hope this did not cause any confusion.
