Remarks & Notes 
Chicago Burlington & Quincy #4960. The Grand Canyon Railway's big Baldwin Mikado #4960 started life in 1923 as freight hog hauling iron ore and other freight on the Chicago Burlington & Quincy, otherwise known as "The Burlington Route." This engine was "retired" from active service on the line in 1960, but continued to pull fan trips on the line for more than a dozen years. She was purchased by the newly developled Grand Canyon Railway in 1989 and underwent an extensive rebuilding effort that not only made her good for another half century of operation, but it changed her look rather significantly. Although she was "born" as a coal-burner, she's oil-fired now. The monstrous new tender that she sports carries significant supplies of both oil and water for the long runs from Williams to the Grand Canyon Village.
