An AT&SF Freight Train Departing

In March of 1943 Jack Delano recorded this scene of an AT&SF freight train as it was pulling out of the yard in Kiowa, Kansas. Kiowa lies on the line running between Wellington, Kansas and Waynoka, Oklahoma.

Steam locomotive #4097 is a 2-8-2 Mikado built by Baldwin in (likely) 1926. Note the passenger car behind the locomotive, which I suppose makes this a mixed freight, even if for only this day.
