||CB&Q 4-6-0 Class K-2 655
||Chicago Burlington & Quincy Railroad 4-6-0 Class K-2 655 at Hudson, Colorado on January 25, 1942, photograph by J. Schick, print by Gordon C. Bassett, Chuck Zeiler collection. Number 655 was built by the Grant Locomotive Works of Cicero, Illinois (previously located in Patterson, New Jersey) in June 1893 as Burlington & Missouri River Railroad 327 (c/n 1810). It was renumbered into the CB&Q system in 1904 as number 655, classed as K-2. The book, Steam Locomotives Of The Burlington Route, shows this locomotive as dismantled in June 1942, the boiler went to another K-2, number 665. The front coupler looks a little odd.
