DRGW 4-8-4 #1703 & DRGW 2-8-0 #1029
Title:  DRGW 4-8-4 #1703 & DRGW 2-8-0 #1029
Description:  Sharp looking 1929 Baldwin 4-8-4 that the D&RGW labeled a "Western" instead of the more traditional label "Northern". Specifics - class M-64, 70" drivers, impressive 240 psi boiler pressure, 27x30" cylinders, engine weight of 408,500 lb, tractive effort of 63,735 lb. All were scrapped by 1956. To the left rear is DRGW 2-8-0 1029 built by Burnham, Wms & Co in 1902, a "small fry" when next to the massive 4-8-4 sister! The date and location were not given for this photo so arbitrary ones were used. G. M. Best photo
