Chico has a good poker hand
Author: WrongWayMurphy

Four aces is a good hand, but the overbite is not a good look, in my opinion.

Fort Madison, Iowa. May 1938. 

A Baldwin product from 1902

HK Vollrath collection

Somebody has been robbing pieces off of the valve gear?
And the main rod is gone, replaced with blocks on the crankpin.
What RR?
SantaFe?

Crikey, what a crate, a Katzenjammer for sure! Thanks for sharing.

Thanks for the photo of the bell.  This confirms what I suspected looking at the crosshead and guides, that the engine was built as a compound.

Probably either awaiting shop time at Ft. Madison or scrapping.  A real Dog's breakfast of an engine.

Santa Fe 1111's final out-of-service date was February 9, 1952 at Cleburne, TX, so in 1938 it still had a future to look forward to.  Cleburne is oil country, so among other things, it was eventually converted to an oil burner.  The engine was built in 1902 as a 4-cylinder Vauclain compound and was simpled at Topeka in 1914.  It didn't go to scrap until 1955.

Here is another "Four Aces."

I find this one much more handsome.

And the UP even came up with a guide to a good poker hand!
