4-2-4 Steam Locomotives

The 4-2-4 type were quite rare and date from the early days of railroading.   They were usually tank engines; that is, they carried their fuel and water in the locomotive and didn't have a tender.  The tank engine is denoted with a "T" at the end of the type; i.e., 4-2-4T.  Here's a picture of the most famous 4-2-4T, the C.P. Huntington, that I took when visiting the California State Railway Museum in Sacramento.  Following that is a better photo taken when the locomotive was outdoors on the CSRM turntable.
