Image 2/21



22 Oct 1998:  One of the two most distinctive features of this locomotive are the twin stacks, quite widely separated and canted at an angle forwards and rearwards.  These are the only external signs of major smokebox redesign:  the angled stacks are to provide more length than could be achieved with a straight stack.
