Atlantic Coast Line 4-6-0, Tenwheeler or Copper Head, Class K, Steam Locomotive # 326, built by Richmond Locomotive & Machine Works. The Class K steam locomotives that were numbered in the 300 series were assigned to freight train service. These locomotives were used through out the ACL system. This photo was taken shortly after the locomotive was constructed. In my opinion this class of locomotive is quite handsome. Courtesy of the Chester Holley Photo Collection.
