This book shows the details inside and out of these 50 locomotives.
The Pacific type locomotives were used throughout the US as both passenger
and freight locomotives when they first came on the scene but not long after,
even the fast freight business had gone toward more locomotives that were
purpose built for that reason because it was found the Pacific's were the
perfect match between power, tractive effort, and everything else necessary
for a great passenger locomotive and that is where they became the most
famous on almost every road they ran on. they started out as an expansion of
the WW1 USRA Mikado type locomotives and quickly proved their worth.
These 50 were the last of 724 Pacific types bought by the Santa Fe and
they were delivered between 1919-1924. Along with a folio drawing of them,
there is a 1950 assignment list showing all of them were still in service and
what they were doing in the back of this book. They had an interesting feature
I had never seen on a steam locomotive tender before that I had to get with some
old heads to tell me why there were so many extra valves on the front of the
tender. The description on page 58 tells all about the extra lines and appliances.
