In this undated photo, Walter A. Peters records the Alton's Pacific No. 5294 and her short train of mostly head-end cars, probably a local. This view shows the post-modernization appearance of the P-16 class, including the air pump shielding above the pilot. Although No. 5294 was never reclassified to P-16B, it is likely that all members of the P-16 group were eventually brought up to modernized P-16B specifications. Judging by the tender lettering, which appears to predate the GM&O merger, the time frame is around 1945-46. Gary Thompson contributed the image.
