4002 is an RS4TC, 74 of which were built at Baldwin-Eddystone for the US Army in 1953 to a modified Davenport design and with a Whitcomb builder’s number, Whitcomb having been acquired Baldwin. Built with a 400HP Cat D397 engine, at least 40 were rebuilt in the 1980s with 500HP Cat 3508 engines, 4002 is one of the upgraded locomotives. The paired stacks forward being replaced by a single one aft and the radiator screens being plated over at the time of upgrade.
