Title:  "Trains" Magazine, October 1956
Description:  Here is a photo taken by Mr. G.G. Grabill, Jr. It was published originally in the October 1956 issue of "Trains" magazine, page 54. Photo Caption: "You could have fooled 'em. K-4 5371 (at Columbus, O., in 1937) looked like an M-1." #5371 is a K-4S (4-6-2) "Pacific" built in Juniata during May of 1924 and retired in March of 1950. Mr. Charles W. Burns (of Steger, IL) adds: "This is ~ or was ~ the only K-4s that could be mistaken for an M-1 when seen head-on. It was the only one with roller bearing rods, lightweight pistons, crossheads, rods, piston rods, and crankpins. It was used between Columbus and Pittsburgh until it was more or less bumped by the diesels. The air reservoir was moved to allow for clearance of the rods due to increased diameter of the big end of the main rods with roller bearings. I think it made a very handsome K-4." (Page 54)
