A locomotive whose number ends in "00" is usually the first member of its class, but the New York Central's 4-6-4 No. 5300 was actually the 26th member of the J-1d class of 40 locomotives delivered by the American Locomotive Company in 1929-1930. No. 5300 was removed from service and sent to the salvagers in 1955, being among the last handful of engines in its class to be retired. For general specifications of the J-1 class, see the commentaries for Nos. 5367 and 5379. The photo, by an unidentified photographer, comes via Wayne Koch. There are no other details.
