Robert Hess General This photo is of B6sa # 201, which was built in Juniata as number "6052" during February of 1914, renumbered "201" in 1915 and retired in April of 1950. The B6sa class had radial fireboxes instead of the Belpaire type, as seen in this photo and on # 63 above. 1/23/2021 9:16:26 AM
