This beautifully proportioned P5 class atlantic No. 2565 was owned by the Chicago, Burlington & Quincy RR more familiarly known as The Burlington Route. This example was one of a class comprising 14 locos dating from the mid-1920's but which were actually rebuilds of earlier locomotives built in 1902/3. This shot was taken at St. Louis Missouri in December 1940 and all were withdrawn from service between 1942 and 1954.
