This book shows the details inside and out of these locomotives.
The Texas class locomotives were designed for fast freight service across
Texas and the desert southwest. They came about in 3 different orders
across the years from 1938 to 1944. The Madame Queen which was locomotive #5000 is not counted here as a separate order because it was a trial and
many changes were made to that experimental unit. This locomotive was the
lead unit in the final order of 25 units of this class the Santa Fe placed
and were built in 1944 as oil burners instead of coal. Built by Baldwin
Locomotive Works shops in Philadelphia, PA these huge locomotives
weighed in at 999,000 lbs., just 1,000 pounds less than 1 million pounds
and when they passed, the earth moved and trembled in their presence.
In addition to the cab views, there are plenty of views of all the
details of this locomotive including the 74" diameter drivers
which were the largest ever applied to 2-10-4 type locomotives.
