Green Bay & Western #402 was photographed in front of the Norwood Yard (Green Bay) turntable on October 10, 1938.

This locomotive was one of three built by Alco and delivered to the railroad in 1937.  Three more nearly identical locomotives joined the roster in 1939.  The locos represented the peak of steam power on the Green Bay Route.

The coming of the diesel Alco FA-1 locomotives in 1947 bumped them to way freight assignments for a few years before they were also taken out of that role by brand-new RS-2s in February 1950. The locomotives were then pulled from revenue service, finally going to the scrap yard in 1956.
