The film record of New England railroading late in the steam era owes much to the work of Horace W. Pontin, a Boston & Albany engineer who was also an avid photographer. Pontin established the Rail Photo Service of Boston, which made available his images along with those of other photographers. As a youth William D. Volkmer acquired Pontin's photo of B&A 2-8-2 No. 1209, snapped at the Beacon Park terminal in Allston, Massachusetts. She was a member of class H-5j with the same dimensions as No. 1200 described previously. The H-5 class had a grate area of 57 square feet, but steam-producing specifications differed among the subclasses. In general these engines had around 4000 square feet of evaporative heating surface and 900 square feet of superheater surface. In 1951, No. 1209 was transferred to other New York Central lines and renumbered to NYC 1345, but was sold for scrap in 1952.
