TP 2-10-4 #616 - Texas & Pacific
Title:  TP 2-10-4 #616 - Texas & Pacific
Description:  Beautiful roster shot by Harold K. Vollrath of the powerful 2-10-4 "Texas" type steam locomotive built by Lima in 1927 for the Texas & Pacific. Although the ATSF had an experimental 2-10-4 they built, the first mass produced 2-10-4 was for the Texas & Pacific. As a result, Lima refered to this particular wheel configuration as the "Texas" type locomotive in honor of the T&P. The particular wheel diameter size coupled with massive rods adn valve gears caused counter-balance problems that made the early 2-10-4's ride rough but they made up for it with much improved tractive effort. Specs - class I-1a, serial #7243, 63" drivers, 255 psi boiler pressure, 29x32" cyldinders, engine weight of 452,000 lb, impressive tractive effrort of 92,590 lb
