Southern Pacific Engine No. 2845, a 10-wheel Consolidation class locomotive with a 2-8-0 wheel configuration, is under steam at Saugus, Calif., on May 28, 1938.
No. 2845 was one of 19 Consolidation-class locomotives built (or rebuilt) by the Southern Pacific itself, possibly as late as 1923. It was
still in operation on the Los Angeles line as late as the early 1950s, maybe longer.
Note: We can't explain why some listings identify SP Engine No. 2845 as a 12-wheeler (4-8-0). This is clearly a 2-8-0.
