Engine No. 801 was built by the Baldwin Locomotive Works at Philadelphia.
It was assembled by the Mechanical forces at Anchorage and placed in service
on August 24, 1932 and was used to haul freight trains. It is a Mountain
(4-8-2) type freight locomotive equipped with Type "A" super-heater, stoker,
three thermic syphons, power reserve, booster and had a vestibule cab.
It was larger and heavier than the 700 Class freight engines placed in
service on 1927 and 1929.
