SOU #1684

 This locomotive had the following characteristics: 

Construction year 1904
Construction number c/n 30246
Constructed by Alco Locomotive Works (Pittsburgh, PA)
Southern Class A-7
Cylinder size (inches) 20"x26"
Steam pressure (pouind per square inch) 185 lbs
Driver size (diameter) 50"
Weight (in pounds) 143,200 lbs
Tractive effort (in pounds) 32,708 lbs

The 1684 was built by Alco in Pittsburgh in 1904. This class A-7 0-6-0 switcher was referenced as working the north end of Pomona Yard in 1943. It is not clear if it was an A&Y rental or remained lettered for Southern as it switched in Pomona. I have not uncovered any further evidence than the Southern-A&Y correspondence from 1943.

According to R.E. Prince's roster, the 1684 was retired in December, 1946.

I have not found a photo of the 1684 in A&Y or Southern lettering.

This builder's photo of a brother A-7 to the 1684, Southern 1680, appeared with descriptive statistics in The Railroad Gazette circa 1905 and comes from the collection of Tom Daspit (see his Southern Railway site).
