Text of the Plaque in front of locomotive reads:
ATLANTIC COAST LINE CLASS P-5A 4-6-2 No. 1504 1919
During the World War I emergency, American railroads were placed under the control of the United States Railroad Administration (USRA). To faciltate construction, operation, and maintenance, all new steam locomotives ordered during this period were built to one of twelve standard designs developed by a committee composed of USRA, railroad and locomotive builder representatives. This family of of locomotives, ranging from 0-6-0 to 2-8-8-2 in size, incorporated the best proven features of the day and was the first successful standardization of American motive power. Although the USRA period lasted only three years, locomotives continued to be built around these basic designs for another decade. ACL 1504, built by American Locomotive Co. Richmond Works, is a "Light Pacific", the most common USRA passenger design. It was in service on ACL for over 30 years and has survived in almost original condition.
