The last N-3
Picture: The last N-3

The year is 1954 and Milwaukee Road's N-3 Mallet No. 64 stands alone with retirement just a few months away. Built by Alco in 1912, these locomotives were 88 ft. 7 inches long including the tenders. In July of 1929, the Tacoma Roundhouse Shops started the modernization of these locomotives. The N-3 locomotives were the heaviest power in service until dieselization arrived. Their work included passenger, freight, mainline and branchline service.
