 The second engine looks like it might be a K1, which were sometimes doubleheaded with hopper car trains on the Radford Division in the early 1950's; but why it would be five cars back in this consist is a mystery.

I gleaned this off ebay over the past year or two but didn’t notice the 2nd engine cut in 5 cars back.  I think the signal number is 2544 but have not looked at timetables to determine location.


Why would the 2nd engine be there and not directly behind the lead?  Where was this taken?
