Steam locomotive No 152, was built by the Rogers Locomotive Works at Patterson, New Jersey, and assigned Rogers Construction Number A 6256. She came out of the shops in 1905, ready for road service, at a cost of $13,406. This makes No 152 the oldest existing Pacific-type locomotive in the world. Originally designed and constructed for high-speed passenger service, she did her job well. When No 152 and her four identical sister locomotives arrived at the Louisville and Nashville Railroad, their efficiency was readily apparent. The Pacific design was believed so superior that the railroad requested construction of an additional forty of the same class. These were turned out between the years of 1906 and 1909. - NRHP, 5 August 1974
