CMO K-1 84579 viewsThe "Omaha" rostered 26 K-1's which were somewhat more powerful than the C&NW R-1 because the cylinder bore was 23" rather than 21". Although they operated with only 185 lbs. of boiler pressure rather than 200, the larger cylinders still produced about 2,500 more tractive force than the R-1's. CStPM&O 184 was built by Schenectady in 1913. Place, date and photographer unknown. Submitted by Edward J. Ozog.

M&StL K-1 502 Chicago, IL673 viewsRobert Graham found Pacific 502 in Chicago on September 25, 1949. Although all five of the 4-6-2's built by Brooks in 1921 were retired by 1939, No. 502 was not reported scrapped until September 1949. Was she at the Chicago Railroad Fair? Her fine condition with rods on does not suggest scrapping is imminent. Submitted by Edward J. Ozog.
