Delaware & Hudson 4-6-2 No. 603 pauses at the depot in Plattsburgh, New York on May 5, 1948. Judging by the lengthy shadows, the train is probably the northbound Laurentian which called at Plattsburgh in the late afternoon. These Pacific types of class P came from Alco's Schenectady works in 1914 with 69-inch drivers, 205 p.s.i. of boiler pressure, and 24x28-inch cylinders. They exerted 40,729 pounds of tractive effort and weighed 293,500 pounds. They had 3896 square feet of evaporative heating surface and 840 square feet of superheating surface. Their 99-square-foot grate area did not indicate outstanding steaming capacity, but was the result of burning low-b.t.u. anthracite coal. These engines, with their face shield and signature D&H recessed headlight and flared stack, held down the line's passenger schedules until the early 1950s. The photo is attributed to the collection of L. A. Stuckey of Brandon, Manitoba.
