Title:

K-4s Engine #1737

Creator:

William J. Rugen

Date:

August 6, 1935

Description:

The Pennsylvania Railroad's K-4s engine #1737 was the first of the K4 class, which turned out to be a classic line, eventually numbering 425 locomotives. It was intended that the 1737 be restored and used as an heirloom example at the World's Fair of 1939. Despite the clear number on the front badge, this may in fact be K-4s engine #3750, which was renumbered and used as a stand-in when it was determined that #1737 was too badly deteriorated to be rebuilt for display. Engine #1737 and tender are seen here at the Morris Park Locomotive Shops in Richmond Hill.
