CO 4-8-2 #549 - Chesapeake & Ohio
Title:  CO 4-8-2 #549 - Chesapeake & Ohio
Description:  The Alco-Richmond factory shine and white walls still gleams in this photo. Built in 1923, it originally was numbered 139 but a year later renumbered to 540. No date, location or photographer was listed for the photo but it appears to be very early in its service, hence the arbitrary date set in 1924. The J-2 class was eventually retired in 1951-52.
