Rio Grande #345 Simmering in the Sunlight

D&RGW 2-8-0 locomotive #345 is a Class C-19 Consolidation, built in 1881 by Baldwin. She was wrecked in 1951 and subsequently scrapped. I don’t have much information about this image; the location is unknown, as well as the date (but likely is the early 1940s). Also unsure if Mr. Radcliffe is the photographer.

It’s probably safe to assume the photograph was recorded in the summer since there’s no snow plow on the pilot.
