TN-61 Class, 4-6-0 Steam Locomotive
Located in a Paris, Arkansas city park is a well-kept secret. Housed in a partially fenced railroad display and lettered as Fort Smith, Subiaco and Rock Island #2522 (or as Paris #2522 as seen in these three photos) is the former Missouri Pacific #2522, a 4-6-0 steam engine.
The Missouri Pacafic owned 128 (2301-2403, 2501-2525) of these TN-61 Class, 4-6-0 locomotives. #2522 was built in 1898 at Cooke Locomotive & Machine Company. She was the finest example of modern technolgy for her day.
she is in very sad shape, suffering from extreme corrosion, her drivers
sunk into the ground and a target for souvineer seekers and vandalism.
From all the classes of steam-driven locomotives to wear the MoPac name,
the #2522 is one of only two Missouri Pacific steam locomotives that has
survived 'til today.
