Similar Locomotives

Tad difficult to count drive wheels with the parallax effect of the almost head-on view. Made me think of engines #35 and #39, Class G4s, built by the PRR Juniata shops for themselves and for the Long Island Railroad, but these are 4-6-0's and have sandboxes. IIRC many if not all LIRR locos carried their numbers in the PRR "Keystone" logo up front. PRR used the G5s for commuter lines, similar to their use on the LIRR - very successful class, but obviously not E2's.


That looks like a PRR E2, built in 1901 or 1902 with a radial firebox and no sand dome, apparently.


Didn't all the E2s look like that as built, with just one dome? Anyone figured out where it is?

Engine ID?

Can anyone identify the engine? I can't see any evidence of a sand dome?

Happy, happy, joy, joy!

The cycloptic engine has such a happy face!
