CEI 4-6-2 #1008 - Chicago & Eastern Illinois
Title:  CEI 4-6-2 #1008 - Chicago & Eastern Illinois
Description:  Nice example of a Baldwin K-2 4-6-2 Pacific built in December of 1911 for the Chicago & Eastern Illinois RR. No location, date or photographer was listed for the photo. Since the tender is still wearing the large "C&EI", the photo was taken before 1941 when the rr switched to loco numbers on the tender.

CEI 4-6-2 #1008 - Chicago & Eastern Illinois
Title:  CEI 4-6-2 #1008 - Chicago & Eastern Illinois
Description:  Only loco in the K-2 4-6-2 Pacifics built by Baldwin in 1911-12 to be streamlined was #1008. The streamlining done in 1940 was purely cosmetic in appearance with no internal improvements. The loco was used to head up the C&EI Dixie Flager. James Bowie photo. No exact date given or location for the photo.

CEI 4-6-2 #1008 - Chicago & Eastern Illinois
Title:  CEI 4-6-2 #1008 - Chicago & Eastern Illinois
Description:  Looking sharp in its 1940 streamlined sheathing is Baldwin K-2 4-6-2 Pacific #1008, the only K-2 to be streamlined. The loco was used to head up the crack Dixie Flager train. Thanks to Mike Woodruff who identified the location (see comment below), this was taken at the 63rd Street station at Englewood just outside Chicago, IL. Sid Davies photo

Chicago & Eastern Illinois 4-6-2 #1008
Title:  Chicago & Eastern Illinois 4-6-2 #1008
Description:  Shrouded in a streamlined shell with its bold, wide "racing" stripe, C&EI #1008 looks great with the fireman casually leaning out the window. Built by Baldwin in 1911 as a class K-2 Pacific-type loco, it had 73" drivers, engine+tender wheelbase of 67.34' and an engine weight of 263,600 lb. Bet it was a beautiful sight flying down the trackes! Not sure but the photographer may have been Tom Mohiz of Chicago - that or a previous owner of the photo.
