bigpistol-Here's some information on L&NE #38 from History of the Lehigh and New England Railroad Company edited by Randolph L. Kulp and published by the Lehigh Valley chapter of the National Railway Historical Society in 1972:
#38 was one of 13 locomotives classed as "E 6" by the L&NE. Built by Baldwin (Philadelphia) in January of 1913 with a construction number of 39086 the locomotive had 50" drivers, had a boiler pressure of 200 lbs. and weighed 146,200 pounds. It was scrapped in May of 1931.
Sorry, I can't help you with a location-there are few visible landmarks in the background of the photo aside from the hill, thus there's not enough to go on, at least for me. Perhaps if you could tell us where your great-grandfather lived some sharp-eyed L&NE enthusiast could correlate that to a yard or division point on the railroad.
Incidentally, a very nice photo! Thanks for sharing! Do you have any idea when it may have been taken?
