30845 - GE 70 Ton Switcher

The #104 switching in Condon.
Another shot of the #104 switching at Condon. The first car behind the locomotive is a woodchip hopper. The CK&S mainline south to Kinzua is that track curving away to the left.
The CK&S ran through some prime rattlesnake habitat, and there was a contest each year held between the train crew and the section gang to see which crew could kill the most snakes. The train crew has spotted a snake here, and a brief stop has been made to dispose of the reptile. The train crew carried a big glass jar in the cab of the #104, and the rattles of each snake killed were deposited in the jar. Keith related that the jar contained a good many rattles.
