California's Railroad to the U.S. 1861 - 1996
Study these two images to see the differences in 16 years, by 1937 a Worthington 4¼BL feed-water heater had been fitted. By 1953, #5023 has had the main driver changed to an LFM Universal disc, a second sand dome has been fitted, the tender changed from the 120-C-8 to a 160-C-2 and although it can't be seen, her booster has also been removed. She was scrapped at Sacramento December 28th 1953
#5016-5038 were all delivered in 1926, these differed only slightly from the SP-1's in being slightly heaver by 1500 pounds, having a short squat smokestack and the bell was smokebox mounted from the factory. A Franklin C-2 booster was fitted to the Delta trailing truck.
Some SP-2's may have the main driver changed to a LFM Universal Disc driver.
Some received a second sand dome, all but 7 lost their boosters in late 40's early 50's and the some got the feed-water heater replaced with a Worthington 4¼BL.
5016-5038 were delivered with a 120-C-8 tenders, later changed to 160-C-2.
