Title:  CB&Q 4-6-2 Class S-1-A 2813
Description:  Chicago Burlington & Quincy Railroad 4-6-2 class S-1-A 2813 on September 27, 1953, location and photographer unknown, print by Gordon C. Bassett, Chuck Zeiler collection. Although the location is unknown, it was assigned to the Chicago Division as of the February 1, 1952 CB&Q Locomotive Assignment Sheet, and the hill in the background looks like the Savanna area. Number 2813 was built by Baldwin in 1906 (c/n 28402) as a class S-1, rebuilt by the CB&Q in 1928 to class S-1-A, and sold for scrap in October 1953. There's a flag in the front coupler, it's dark, so either blue or red.
