Source Caption: V&T #26 eases out of her single stall enginehouse in Reno one cool morning in May, 1949 before coupling on to her train that waits in the background. A year later she will come to a firey end when on May 1, 1950 dripping burning oil from her firebox ignites in the pit below her and she perishes in the flames of the enginehouse fire.
