"Dale French worked as a List Man & Head Brakeman on an engine of this class.  I worked on the 2108, 2109, 2111, 2140 and probably others.  These engines worked between Mattoon & Peoria on the PD&E on ICRR.  I worked as a fireman for 1 trip.  These engines were replaced by diesels around 1952."  (Unknown Photographer)
