ATSF 4-4-2 #1484 - Atchison, Topeka & Santa Fe
Title:  ATSF 4-4-2 #1484 - Atchison, Topeka & Santa Fe
Description:  Built by Baldwin in 1910, the 4-4-2 Atlantic style steam locomotive was nicknamed Bull Mooser for the odd 3 dome appearance and external steam piping like the one in the photo. In the 1920's, the class was simplified and superheated which changed its unusual 3 dome look. 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 was listed for the photo so approximates were used.
