Appearing in 1936 at Cornwall-on-Hudson, New York is 2-8-2 No. 3787 of class H-5f shortly before her renumbering to 1282 — which number she bore until 1948, when she assumed number 1524. This engine was the last of her subclass and among the last NYC steam locomotives to be retired, holding out until the middle of 1957. Like other H-5s she was a conversion from a G-5 Consolidation, delivered by Alco in 1906 as 2-8-0 No. 2789 and rebuilt in 1913 as 2-8-2 No. 2612. For the dimensions of these Mikados, consult the commentary for No. 1351; the H-5f class weighed 277,000 pounds. A booster on some H-5s added 9,900 pounds to their tractive effort. The photographer's identity is unknown, but the image came from the collection of Wayne Koch.
