ATSF 4-4-2 #1491 - Atchison, Topeka & Santa Fe
Title:  ATSF 4-4-2 #1491 - Atchison, Topeka & Santa Fe
Description:  This 1910 Baldwin built Atlantic type locomotive was a departure from the normal configuration and prone to leaks. The Forrest Trittenbach photo was labeled as taken in Purpis, Col, but no location matches the name. With Mike Woodruff's help (see comment below), the location is Pueblo Union Depot.

ATSF 4-4-2 #1491 - Atchison, Topeka & Santa Fe
Title:  ATSF 4-4-2 #1491 - Atchison, Topeka & Santa Fe
Description:  Built by Baldwin in 1910, the class was originally nicknamed Bull Mooser for its odd 3 dome appearance and external steam piping. The Santa Fe shops eventually simplified and superheated the class in the 1920' like #1491. They were very handy for branch-line local passenger service and lasted until the early 1950's. Original specs - class 1480, 73" drivers, 220 psi, 15x26" high pressure cylinders, 25x26" low pressure cylinders, engine weight of 231,675 lb, tractive effort of 22,038 lb. No date, location or photographer listed but it appears to be the Kansas City, MO, train shed.
