Baldwin 4-6-2

Another soon-to-be-added motive powerhouse is this Baltimore and Ohio P-7 "President" 4-6-2 Pacific. It is a prototype class of 20 built 1927-1928 by Baldwin. As you might guess it was named for our American Presidents. It presently has no identifying features, but with a little help should soon have either RG&P or SP&S colors ... I am fairly certain of the first as the second would probably be out of character. The overhaul crew might want to look at it before puting it in service. A well running engine is a happy engine!

Hey! That looks like a 4-6-2 Pacific Class to me! Fix that heading and text. See the little truck under the firebox?
