NKP 4-6-4 #171, Nickel Plate (New York, Chicago & St. Louis RR)
Title:  NKP 4-6-4 #171, Nickel Plate (New York, Chicago & St. Louis RR)
Description:  Here's another example of the Alco-Brooks Hudson, class L-1a, built in March of 1927. The unknown photographer notes on the back "NKP 4-6-4 #171 is a wonderful machine to see running, but in this condition she still has a formidable façade. She has been idle since June, 1956 but doesn't look it. She is to be cutt up, however. Note missing bell." She was sold for scrap in February of 1957 to Luntz Iron & Steel Co who had not yet begun with the torch yet..

Title:  NKP 4-6-4 #171, Nickel Plate (New York, Chicago & St. Louis RR)
Description:  Here's another view of #171 built by Alco-Brooks in March of 1927. The unknown photographer wrote on the back of the photo "NKP 4-6-4 #171. Idle for over 1 year, (June, 1956 was the last active month), but she is servicable. Still has "live" grease on her crosshead guides, coal in her tender. She is missing a bell, however." Note that there was a hole in the photograph on the master cylinders.

NKP 171
Title:  NKP 171
Description:  Nickel Plate #171, a 4-6-4 L1-A, was built by Brooks in March of 1927. Thirty years later, the end is very near for this locomotive, as it was sold to Luntz Iron and Steel Company as scrap. Its last month of revenue service was June of 1956. Over a year later, here it sits on Sunday August 18, 1957 by the roundhouse in Bellevue, Ohio. Photo by James Pope.
