A PUSHER Steam Engine
Much like that used at New Richmond from 1871 to 1950.
Vern actually was able to get up into this engine when it was waiting for a push job.
The job was to push other steam trains up the hill on the other side of the river,
going up to East Saugatuck, and backing up to the same waiting point.
See Pusher Location at bottom of MAP.
