Engineer Kevin McGarvey in the cab of Livonia, Avon & Lakeville Railroad 2-8-0 steam locomotive #38 at Lakeville, New York, in 1974. The LA&L is a "short line" railroad in western New York, and at the time used #38 as a switching locomotive during the week and in passenger excursion service on the weekends. The engineer, who was only 25 years old at the time of the photograph, invited the photographer into the cab. The image captures a gritty familiarity with a certain timeless quality. Most railroads in the United States had stopped using steam in the 1950s, and the photo could easily have been made in 1930s or 40s. McGarvey remained with the L&AL for his entire career, rising to the position of Chief Mechanical Officer. He passed away in 2008. Fasulo photographed McGarvey
a second time in 2005.
