Remarks & Notes 
Clover Valley Lumber #4 and the "Burning of Rome". At just above every charter, we'll get one photographer who gets really grumpy after a run-by that features an almost completely clean stack. Hey, most of us do like a little smoke to remind the viewers of our photos that this is indeed a steam engine, and a smoke plume is one of the things that makes these machines spectacular. Unfortunately, a radio call to the crew for "MORE SMOKE" is invariably met with a bit of an over-reaction, and the result is typically what you see here. On the very next run-by, the fireman will be over-firing so heavily that massive flashes of fire are visible below the fire pan, and the plume is dense and black. Legendary photographers Beebe & Clegg used to call it "The Burning of Rome" and they wanted their pictures to look like this. So in their memory, we'll dedicate this one to Lucius and Charles.
