CSS&SB 902
Title:  CSS&SB 902
Description:  CSS&SB Baldwin-Westinghouse Class E 902 at Michigan City, Indiana on October 23, 1965, Kodachrome by Chuck Zeiler. Number 902 was built in September 1929 (c/n 61048) as Illinois Central 10002. In 1941 the South Shore obtained the four Class E's built for the IC (#'s 10000-10003), renumbering them 900-903. One of the results was that every B-W Class E ever built was on the South Shore's roster. They were designed for a top speed of 45 mph and weighed over 90 tons. Baldwin constructed the carbodies in their tender shops in Philadelphia, using standard tender structural components, shipped the empty shells on modified tender trucks to Pittsburgh where Westinghouse installed the electrical systems, tested, then sold them to customers, the IC in this case. Baldwin was merely a contract supplier.
