CB&Q 4-6-2 Class S-1 2837
Title:  CB&Q 4-6-2 Class S-1 2837
Description:  Chicago Burlington & Quincy Railroad 4-6-2 Class S-1 2837 at (I believe) Schenectady, New York on an unknown day in 1907, photo by Alco, Chuck Zeiler collection. This locomotive was built by Schenectady (Alco) in 1907 (c/n 43482), one of 15 class S-1's (#'s 2830-2844), copies of 30 Baldwin-built class S-1's built in 1906 road #'s 2800-2829. The S-1 class was based on the Class R-5 2-6-2 Prairies, with the tube length increased by 24 inches and the driver diameter increased to 74 inches. The cylinders, driving and trailing axle journals were the same dimensions as the R-5's permitting interchangeability between the two classes. This particular locomotive was rebuilt to Class S-1-A in 1924 and sold for scrap in April 1951. The absence of a headlight suggests that this locomotive was shipped to the CB&Q where the Q's own style of headlight (known among some as a cuckoo headlight because of its shape) would be installed.
