Locomotive Smokestacks
The most distinguishing characteristics of DSP&P locomotives are the variety of smokestacks that appeared across the early years (1875 - 1900). The image below shows Mallory Hope Ferrell's drawings from Narrow Gauge and Shortline Gazette of Mar/Apr 2014.


DSP&P Smokestacks: Diamond, Nesmith, Congdon, McConnell (or Pancake) styles.
