Title:  CB&Q O-1 5050
Description:  Chicago Burlington & Quincy Railroad class O-1 5050 at Philadelphia, Pennsylvania on an unknown day in October 1911, photo by Baldwin Locomotive Works, Chuck Zeiler collection. In 1910, the CB&Q ordered fifty 2-8-2 locomotives from Baldwin, road numbers 5000-5049, and followed that order with another in 1911 for ten additional 2-8-2's, road numbers 5050-5059. Each was equipped with a Hodges trailing truck equalized with the drivers through a transverse bar. Although delivered with hand-reverse mechanisms, the engine group was later fitted with power reverse.
