Tonopah 2-6-0 #4

I was able to obtain a Baldwin Locomotive Works card for Tonopah RR #4. This sales tool is a photo on one side and various size and dimensional data on the other side. Here it is:

The #4, as were all of the Tonopah narrow-gauge locomotives, was sold to the Sumpter Valley in later 1905 after the standard-gauging. The four locomotives kept their numbers and existing SV locomotives were renumbered.

SV#4 is then retired 3/1932.

I hadn't previously realized what a large mogul that was: 45" drivers, 16x22 cylinders, and 35 tons on the drivers? Quite impressive indeed!
