California's Railroad to the U.S. 1861 - 1996
SP AC-6 #4148 was caught in Dunsmuir, California on August 14, 1938. Photo from the collection of Gene Deimling.
The first 23 AC-6 class engines were built in 1930 and the last two in 1931 by Baldwin. These differed from previous AC-4's and AC-5's with amongst other things a higher boiler pressure of 250lbs, a weight of 648,000lbs and a tractive effort of 124,300lbs.
According to a note on the SP lettering drawing dated 12/30/49 all AC class engines assigned to Sacramento, Shasta, Portland, and San Joaquin Divisions shall omit the large SOUTHERN PACIFIC on the tender sides, also F class engines on Shasta Division. Photo evidence shows that this was often but not always the case. Charles Givens
All scrapped by 1955.
