ATSF 2-10-0 #989 - Atchison, Topeka & Santa FE
Title:  ATSF 2-10-0 #989 - Atchison, Topeka & Santa FE
Description:  This was one of only three 2-10-0 decapods in the 988 class. An order for more was cancelled due to derailing tendencies when backing. Built by Alco-Schenectady in 1901, the three locos lasted until 1938. This photo has been incorrectly labeled as 1945 so an approximate date was used. No location was given nor a photographer either..
