Title:  CBQ 4-6-2 #2951 - Chicago, Burlington & Quincy
Description:  Here is a 1915 Baldwin built Pacific (class S-3) sitting in the afternoon sun with its Art Deco style tender. It had tall 74" drivers, developed a 200 psi boiler pressure for its 27"x28" cylinders and had an engine weight of 278,600 lb. It could apply a tractive effort of 46,892 lb> According to SteamLocomotives website, "They represented a revamped Pacific design with a new shorter boiler, combustion chamber, and brick arch. Other improvements were lighter, heat-treated steel alloy reciprocating parts, hollow-bore piston rods and crank pins, and the Laird suspended crosshead, Ragonnet power reverser, and eventually a Worthington or Elesco feedwater heater."
