0-8-0 No. 7538 was a member of class U-2g, a Lima Locomotive Works product of 1918 (note the diamond-shaped builder's plate). For the specifications of this class, see the commentary for No. 7539. I snapped this photo in Lansing, Michigan, in August 1953, when this locomotive and its companion were out of service and stored outside the roundhouse. However, sources indicate that No. 7538 was not officially retired until 1959.
