Jack Fravert had one of the builder's plates from the #244. It was purchased at auction by Jerry Jacobson a numbeer of years ago. I have the plate from the next to last S1a built in my collection.

Can anyne tell what the scrapping date was for #244, the last steam locomotive built
in the US for a common carrier ? Any other information about it, such as a retirement
date, where it worked, and final location before being scrapped would be appreciated.
