CB&Q 2-8-2 Class O-1-A 5079
Title:  CB&Q 2-8-2 Class O-1-A 5079
Description:  Chicago Burlington & Quincy Railroad 2-8-2 Class O-1-A 5079 at Keenesburg, Colorado on January 11, 1941, photograph by J. Schick, print by Gordon C. Bassett, Chuck Zeiler collection. Number 5079 was built by Baldwin in June 1918 (c/n 48994) and sold for scrap in November 1960. At an unknown date it was converted to burn oil. I would guess this was a switching move, based on the open door on the stock car.

These locomotives were classed O-1-A and assigned road numbers 5060-5147 (built in 1917-1922) and 4940-4999 (built in 1923). Number 5079 was built by Baldwin in June 1918 (c/n 48994) and retired in November 1960.
