CB&Q 2-8-0 Class D-1 453
Title:  CB&Q 2-8-0 Class D-1 453
Description:  Chicago Burlington & Quincy Railroad 2-8-0 Class D-1 453 at Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, sometime in 1884, photo by Baldwin Locomotive Works, Chuck Zeiler collection. Built as a 2-8-0 Consolidation Type in the summer of 1884 (c/n 7337) renumbered 1632 in 1904, rebuilt into a class G-4-A 0-6-0 sometime before 1910, renumbered to 1453, retired November, 1928. The following is from the book, "Steam Locomotives of the Burlington Route", by Bernard G. Corbin and William F. Kerka: In the summer of 1884 the Baldwin Locomotive Works completed ten 2-8-0 types, numbers 449-458, similar to their earlier models, but built in accordance with plans and specifications furnished by the railroad company. The boiler of this design was 56" diameter and of the straight-top type. Steel plate was used throughout, including the firebox which was radial stayed. The earlier Consolidations had short main rods connected to the second pair of drivers, but these latest engines had longer rods coupled to the third pair. Because the firebox was also built between the third and fourth pair of driving wheels, it was necessary to locate the eccentrics on the second axle. The main frames were forged steel with welded braces. The connecting rods and crank pins were also of forged steel. Westinghouse brake equipment was applied on driving and tender wheels. The tender capacity was 3,000 gallons and the feedwater system employed two injectors. The cylinder dimensions were the same as the earlier types (20"X24"), but the driving-wheel diameter was increased to 52".

CB&Q 2-8-0 Class D-1 453
Title:  CB&Q 2-8-0 Class D-1 453
Description:  Chicago Burlington & Quincy Railroad 2-8-0 Class D-1 453 builders plate, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, sometime during 1884, photo by Baldwin Locomotive Works, Chuck Zeiler collection. Builders photos were generally done with 8X10 view cameras, producing an eight inch by ten inch negative which could be retouched by hand to produce an almost flawless image. When printiing, the print was contact printed with the negative, that is, the negative and print paper touched each other and were pressed between a board and a piece of glass, then exposed to light. As a result, the print yielded exceptional detail, as seen here. The detail of the builders plate can be read, even off a photograph of the entire locomotive.
