CB&Q 4-8-4 Class O-5-A 5618
Title:  CB&Q 4-8-4 Class O-5-A 5618
Description:  Chicago Burlington & Quincy Railroad 4-8-4 Class O-5-A 5618 on a fantrip, photographer unknown, hand written on the slide mount is: 'Ill-Wis Line St. Croix River July 4, 1958'. The Saint Croix River is located near Saint Paul, Minnesota, so if this is the state line between Illinois and Wisconsin, then this mght be the Wisconsin River in the background, or this may be northbound shot with the Mississippi River in the background. I speculated on the location of Cassville, being a town close to the state line. Anyone with more correct info please leave a comment. Also, although Baldwin did not construct this locomotive, it was assembled from components at the CB&Q shops in West Burlington, Iowa, and Baldwin did manufacture the boiler. See Comments below for more information.
