Southern Pacific #4294 is the sole surviving "cab-forward" steam locomotive.

AboutEdit

4294 was built by the Baldwin Locomotive Works as the last steam locomotive for the Southern Pacific. The engine worked on mountain routes for 12 years until being retired in 1956.

4294 was decided to be preserved when a group of men were able to convince the Southern Pacific to preserve a Cab-Forward. It was subsequently donated to the California State Railroad Museum, where it still resides today.
