Caught them returning to the old Rock Island Depot here in Abilene, KS today. Might be one more run later this year, otherwise she will be put away until next year. She needs a bath!

I like to look at this detail!
I'm not an expert but, this looks like Walschearts (spelling?) valve gearing.
Thanks for getting/sending these images!!

Most welcome. Have not the foggiest idea on the valve gearing, I just like to watch them run.

You were close, Walschaerts valve gears according to Google. This must be why people are always saying "Google it".

The Walschaerts valve gear is a type of valve gear invented by Belgian railway mechanical engineer Egide Walschaerts in 1844 used to regulate the flow of steam to the pistons in steam engines.
