||BO 4-6-2 #5303 - Baltimore & Ohio
||Hwe is an example of a railroad "phoenix" who keeps rising from its ashes. Built by Baldin in February of 1927 (serial #59884), it was one of the Presidential Series of Pacifics and carried the name President Monroe for the first part of its life. In 1947, it was streamlined for the "Cincinnatian" train set (P-7d class) seen here in this photo. In 1956 it was renumbered BO #110. Finally in 1957, it was retired. Original specs - P-7 class, 80" drivers, impressive 230 psi boiler pressure, 27x28" cylinders, engine weight of 326,000 lb, tractive effort of 50,000 lb. No date or location was given for the photo and only a photo credit to RR Avenue Enterprises.
