This vintage black and white photograph, dated April 1901, shows a Baldwin Locomotive with the Engineer posing in the cab window.
This train is called the Long island No. 1 at Morris Park, Long Island, N.Y. It is one of two 4-4-2 “camelbacks,” Class E.51.S, construction No. 18937, that Baldwin completed for the line in April 1901. The divided cab design was unusual for the Long Island Railroad or LIRR, though common during that period on other railroad lines.
This engine was retired in 1929.
