CB&Q 2-10-4 Class M-4 6318
Title:  CB&Q 2-10-4 Class M-4 6318
Description:  Chicago Burlington & Quincy Railroad 2-10-4 Class M-4 6318 somwhere on the Beardstown Division on an unknknown day in late 1927, photo by Baldwin Locomotivwe Works, Chuck Zeiler collection. The following is from the Burlington Route Historical Society's Bulletin 21, 'The Q's Colorado Types', by Hol Wagner:

The head-end crew, including a number of Mechanical Department officials, posed with the still-new 6318 as the M-4 was recorded by a Baldwin photographer on one of its break-in runs in coal train service on the Beardstown Division late in 1927. Note the air horns behind the stack and white flag. Note too the single-chime whistle mounted on the large live steam line, just ahead of the rear sand dome. The air horns won't last more than a few months, and the whistle would be moved forward, adjacent to the horns' former position. I count nine people in this photo, possibly a crowded cab on this date.

CB&Q 2-10-4 Class M-4 6318
Title:  CB&Q 2-10-4 Class M-4 6318
Description:  Chicago Burlington & Quincy Railroad 2-10-4 Class M-4 6318 at Centralia, Illinois on May 5, 1941, photograph by R. J. Foster, print by Gordon C. Bassett, Chuck Zeiler collection. This photo presents a date conflict. The print is maked as 1941, the book, Steam Locomotive of the Burlington Route indicates number 6318 was rebuilt in December 1939 to Class M-4-A. I usually judge the locomotive as rebuilt by the extra step in the running board just above the front of the firebox, which stepped over the soot blowers, installed during rebuilding. Also during rebuilding the rear sand dome was moved forward and located just ahead of the steam dome. So, one of the two dates appears to be incorrect.

CB&Q 2-10-4 Class M-4-A 6318
Title:  CB&Q 2-10-4 Class M-4-A 6318
Description:  Chicago Burlington & Quincy Railroad 2-10-4 Class M-4-A 6318, date, location, and photographer unknown, print by Tom Klinger, Chuck Zeiler collection. My best guess would be at Galesburg, Illinois circa 1955. Number 6318 was built by Baldwin in November 1927 ( c/n 60282 ) as a Class M-4, rebuilt in December 1939 to Class M-4-A, sold for scrap in May 1961.
