Rivarossi 1570 SP Class AC-11 4-8-8-2 Cab Forward Locomotive #4257

"Southern Pacific Railroad's AC-11 Class (meaning Articulated Consolidation) of cab forward steam locomotives was the seventh class of 4-8-8-2 locomotives ordered by Southern Pacific (SP) from Baldwin Locomotive Works; SP was so pleased with the AC-10 class built a year earlier that the railroad began placing orders for AC-11s while the AC-10s were still being built and delivered. They were built between November 1942 and April 1943, closely resembling the AC-10s.

The first AC-11, number 4245, entered service on November 24, 1942, and the last, 4274, on May 9, 1943. SP used these locomotives for between 12 and 15 years, with the last retirements from this class occurring on September 24, 1958. Shortly after their retirement, the AC-11s were scrapped, with the last, number 4274, on April, 1959. None of the members of this class were preserved." (From: https://locomotive.fandom.com)
