NKP 0-6-0 no. 17 - Kokomo, Indiana
Nickel Plate 0-6-0 #17 was switching at Kokomo, Indiana on July 19, 1941. I can’t identify the location, but maybe someone from the Kokomo area can. The switch engine was built as Clover Leaf #17(2nd) by Baldwin in January 1921, but not delivered until December 1922 when the road ended it’s receivership. The engine became NKP #717 in 1924, NKP #17(5th) in May 1942 and finally NKP #317 (2nd) in February 1947. The engine was retired at Frankfort in September 1947 and sold to Summer & Company on October 13, 1947. Photo is from the Bob Albert collection.
