PRR no. 1737 plate
Title:  PRR no. 1737 plate
Description:  This is one of the builders plates from the prototype K4s pacific no. 1737. In the 1950s, 3750 was renumbered to 1737 because the original 1737 had deteriorated so much that it would be impossible to preserve. The original 1737 was scrapped and 3750 took its place wearing its numberboards and builders plates.
