Engine 2147

I have a photo of my grandfather with Engine 2147 taken around 1912. It is a 4-6-2 and I would like to know who built it and the class. He was an engineer for the LVRR from the latter part of the 1800's. :-D

Was probably built by the Lehigh Valley in the Sayre shop -

2089 was the last Sayre-built engine, a 4-6-2, built in 1925.

Pacific 2147, even though she has a higher number, was built earlier!
2147 was built by Baldwin in 1919, class K-5.5

Thanks. That is the exact photo I have except, of course, with my grandfather and one of his crew included.
