CB&Q 0-6-0 Class G-5-A 523
Title:  CB&Q 0-6-0 Class G-5-A 523
Description:  Chicago Burlington & Quincy Railroad 0-6-0 Class G-5-A 523 at Philadelphia, Pennsylvania on an unknown day in December 1920, photo by Baldwin Locomotive Works, Chuck Zeiler collection. This locomotive was completed during December, 1920 (c/n 54195) and sold for scrap during May 1954. This is a USRA design, a total of 255 of this model were built by all builders, and the CB&Q received ten from Alco. After the USRA was dissolved in 1920, 15 copies were built by Baldwin and classed G-5-A. The main difference between the two classes was the omission of the steam superheater on the G-5-A's.

CB&Q 0-6-0 Class G-5-A 523
Title:  CB&Q 0-6-0 Class G-5-A 523
Description:  Chicago Burlington & Quincy Railroad 0-6-0 Class G-5-A 523 at Philadelphia, Pennsylvania on an unknown day in December 1920, photo by Baldwin Locomotive Works, Chuck Zeiler collection. This locomotive was completed in December 1920 (c/n 54195) and delivered to the CB&Q during 1921. It was one of 15 copies of the USRA 0-6-0 design ordered by the CB&Q, one of 25 on the railroad. The CB&Q had received 10 USRA 0-6-0's (class G-5) from Alco during 1919. The Alco's were pure USRA 0-6-0's, while the Baldwins were copies of the USRA design with some CB&Q modifications (no superheater, taller domes, CB&Q headlights, arch bar tender trucks, different tender design, to name a few).
