@r_i_straw OK, it looks like this one had the flexible hinge (for want of a better descriptive) built into the boiler- troublesome and not very successful. I had never seen a 3/4 view of this...
In the photo you can see part of this locomotive coupled right behind the 3009. [IMG]
@RailMix It was built by Santa Fe in 1911 as a Mallet. Photo taken not long after on November 11, 1911. It was cut up in 1917 to build locomotives #3015 with the high pressure truck and #3025...
Interesting to note that the low pressure cylinders were equipped with piston valves, I would think somewhat unusual for Mallets of this vintage.
Won't your trains get dizzy going around and around in circles like that?
