Boston & Providence Locomotive "Daniel Nason", Built in 1863
G. S. Griggs, the builder, was motive power superintendent for the B&P. From "A Little Story of the Boston & Providence Railroad Company" by Charles E. Fisher (privately printed booklet, 1917). The B&P was leased by the Old Colony in 1888. The Old Colony, in turn, was leased by the New Haven in 1893. A NERail viewer reminds me that this locomotive is preserved today at the Museum of Transportation in suburban St. Louis.
Unknown photographer 1863.
