No. 174 is hauling a freight train

Nickel Plate Road No. 174 is a class class L-1b 4-6-4 "Hudson" Type steam locomotive It was built by Lima in 1929 for the Nickel Plate Road.

It was used for passenger and freight service on the Nickel Plate Road.

It was retired in the 1950s when diesels take over for the Nickel Plate Road and it was sold for scrapped.

Trivia Edit

A guy name Robert Leffingwell captured No. 174 on a transparency at Englewood Station, Chicago, in the mid-1950s with a passenger train — probably not one of the Nickel Plate's scheduled trains but a railfan special, judging by the lack of head-end equipment.
