Could you please tell me how to pull up this picture in the archives? I've tried every way I know to access the collection with no results.

 Pat Ryan has called my
 attention to a photo in the archives under locator number
 NW01808 Which shows a streamlined K2 or K2a with an all
 black tender. Examining the photo I note that the main
 rods have been removed, no locomotive number is visible, and
 the tender is either a 16 or an 18A. There are two
 K1's behind it. All this leads me to the opinion that
 these engines are in a scrap line, and for some reason the
 K2 has had her 22 class tender swapped before scrapping. In
 order to move her in a train, she had to have a tender, and
 this one was available. What is not clear is what became of
 her 22 class tender. This late in steam, there were still
 Y's and A's in service which could use a 22 class
 tender; but what became of the original tender of the
 recipient? Could this be a
  direct swap with a Y3a? Makes you wonder! Anyway, I
 don't think the streamlined K2 was paired with this
 tender while in service.
