Title:  UP 4-8-4 #806 - Union Pacific
Description:  Long before the GP30 wore the number 806, this 1937 Alco-Schenectady built Northern loco did. As it sits in the afternoon sun in the Cheyenne yard barely a year old, it still has the "new" shine to it and little western dust or road grime yet. Specifics - FEF-1 class, 77" drivers, impressive 300 psi boiler pressure, 24.5x32" cylinders, engine weight of 460,640 lb, tractive effort of 63611 lb. The class was retired between 1954-61. unknown photographer
