Three former New York Elevated, Baldwin and New York Locomotive Company, 0-4-4 Forney locomotives. Lie abandoned on the Arctic Tundra in the mouth of the Solomon River on the Seward Peninsular. They worked for the ill starred Council City and Solomon River Rail Road. This railway was part of the Gold Rush of which Nome was the epicentre. The bubble burst on the Gold Rush and the railway closed around 1916 and the three locomotives, which had formally worked on elevated lines of New York City, have lain abandoned, slowly rotting into the tundra lashed by ferocious winter storms in the Bering Sea. These pictures were taken in June 2000 and the location of the wrecks, in the mouth of the Solomon River, is a unique site of scientific and industrial interest; a kind of industrial Stonehenge and one of the great railway sights of the world.
