Equipment Information

IC W4150 is a steam locomotive tender. It would originally have been semi-permanently coupled to a steam engine and would carry water and coal to supply the engine itself. This tender has been restored for use as an auxiliary water car for Frisco 1630 so refilling that locomotive’s tender with water in the middle of the day is unnecessary.
