Strange Foreign power. Was: Re: N&W hoppers on Sherman Hill

I think that one of the most interesting instances of foreign power showing up in places where you would never expect it was the documented instance of a D&RGW (?) 2-8-8-2 under steam being ferried over the M&StL in Illinois with a M&StL crew. I cannot recall either the date or the reasons, but at least a photographer was able to take at least one photo! I often wondered what the engine crew thought of operating this great beast!
