CB&Q 4-6-2 S-1-A 2804
Title:  CB&Q 4-6-2 S-1-A 2804
Description:  Chicago Burlington & Quincy Railroad 4-6-2 class S-1-A 2804 at Denver, Colorado on September 24, 1938, photograph by Richard Kindig, print by Tom Klinger, Chuck Zeiler collection. Number 2804 was built by Baldwin in 1906 (c/n 28281) as a class S-1, rebuilt in 1926 as a class S-1-A, and sold for scrap in March 1954. The following is from the Burlington Route Historical Society's Bulletin 13, SHOVELNOSES, edited by F. Hol Wagner: When the diesels failed, steam frequently came to the rescue. But first, the coupler pocket and air hose covers had to be removed from the pilot of the shovelnose unit, and hoses and coupler (carried in the cab) installed before the rescue engine could be coupled up. In this instance, S-1-A Pacific 2804 drags ailing 9907A and B and an 11-car DZ (Denver Zephyr) into Denver on September 24, 1938, an hour and 16 minutes late. A broken water pump was the culprit here, disrupting the functioning of the lead motor's cooling system.
