大峽谷鐵道 4960號蒸汽機車 Grand Canyon Railway #4960

4960號蒸汽機車於1923年Baldwin Locomotive Works製造並於Chicago, Burlington & Quincy Railroad用來於美國中西部間載運鐵礦砂等貨物列車,後來在1960年退休。在1970年代早期作為靜態展示。大峽谷鐵道在1989年將這輛機車買下並展開長時間的修復工作,並將原先燒煤改成燒柴油,到2009年進一步改成燃燒回收廢棄植物油。從2009年起4960號蒸汽機車成為大峽谷鐵道的主幹蒸氣車輛。
Steam Locomotive No. 4960 was built in 1923 by the Baldwin Locomotive Works in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania and saw service on the Chicago, Burlington & Quincy Railroad hauling iron ore and other freight throughout the American Mid-West. Retired from CB&Q RR in 1960, it pulled excursion trains, museum trains, and circus trains throughout Wisconsin and other mid-western States until the early 1970’s when it was put on static display. Purchased by Grand Canyon Railway in 1989, in 1996 No. 4960 underwent one of the most extensive locomotive rebuilding and restoration projects in modern history, converting it from a coal-burner to burn diesel as fuel. Further modifications were made to it in 2009, as GCR converted it to run on recycled Waste Vegetable Oil. Since 2009, No. 4960 has served as the backbone of our steam fleet, powering all of our steam excursions and round-trip trains to Grand Canyon. Due to its popularity, No. 4960 has taken its place as an icon among operational steam locomotives in the United States.
