||Chicago Burlington & Quincy Railroad 2-8-2 Class O-1-A 5143 at Denver, Colorado on October 31, 1954, photograph by H. O'Hanlon, print by Gordon C. Bassett, Chuck Zeiler collection. Number 5143 was built by Baldwin in July 1922 (c/n 55536) and sold for scrap in December 1957. I don't know when pole filters were invented, but I'll bet our photographer sure wanted one. That looks like a couple of railfans in the shot on the right.
