Climax #1613  N. W. Heineman


This image is of one of the N. W. Heineman Class A's used at Crosby, PA.  It appears to be construction number 1613, and if so would be a 22 ton engine.  Note the round water cistern.  The cistern on later locos was changed to a square configuration.  This railroad was 3' narrow gauge.  Of particular note in this image is the offset coupler pocket to the right side of the center of the locomotive.  Apparently this engine was used on dual gauge track to do some switching.  Note the sand dome on the rear of the locomotive.  Climax used sand domes on the back of the Class A's that were like the ones astride the boiler.  Some locos had one, some two, and others none at all.
