Equipment Information

KCS 759 is the tender from a class G-2 steam locomotive, which was a 2-8-8-0 Mallet freight engine. It is a “Vanderbilt” style tender, meaning it has a cylindrical water tank rather than the more common square water tank design. The steam engine to which this tender was once attached was scrapped in the 1950s.
