Class 4 (Locobase 12901)

Data from Baldwin Locomotive Works Specification for Engines, 1890, as digitized by the DeGolyer Library of Southern Methodist University Vol 16, p. 69. Works number was 10866 in May 1890.

NB: Heating surface data is derived from comparison with the Kearney & Black Hills order of the same year, (Locobase 11697) which has identical firebox dimensions as well as identical tube counts, diameters, and length.
