Clyde's Engine

Over the weekend I  was downstate for my wife's family reunion, and we spent some time going through old photographs.  I'll spare you the pictures of her as a four year old, etc.  But in the midst of all the typical family photos was this postcard of Frisco 2002, an early 2-8-8-2.  Several years ago we found a postcard of Frisco 1241, which was posted to my Steam Page.   On this new postcard, the locomotive is labeled "Clyde's Engine" and we have a picture of Clyde himself.   The wife is the same person, and she now has a name: Edna.  We believe he was Clyde Compton, my late father-in-law's uncle.  Be that as it may, the 2002 is certainly another fascinating machine.
