Title:  CNW 4-8-4 #3024 - Chicago & North Western
Description:  On display at the 1934 World's Fair held in Chicago, this must have made a powerful impression from its massive size alone. Built by Baldwin in 1929 as an H class loco, it had 76" drivers, created an impressive 250 psi boiler pressure, and generated a 65,225 lb tractive force. After serving as a model display here, it went into heavy usage, rebuilt several times and finally scrapped sometime between 1950-56. Warren W. McCleary Jr photo
