WP #406 @ Salt Lake City on Aug. 10, 1952

wplives.com/index showed that #406 was vacated in May 1952, however if the date on this negative was correct there's coal in that tender in August 1952

A photo I have seen of the NP Challengers appeared that they were pretty rugged as well. They had a much larger firebox than the UP's due to the type of coal they had available.

Great to see this, I read somewhere that photos of WP 401 class Challengers are somewhat rare?

Also keep in mind that date on the negative may possibly be the date it was developed, not the date it was taken? (I could be completely wrong about that by the way!)
