Acquired this summer, Long Island's legendary K4s #5406's second headlight. My father placed a slow order on her train in 1944, but was overridden by his boss, Frank Aikman. The train did hit a washout weakened area near "S" cabin, as my father had feared. In the re-railing process, the original headlight was crushed, lost, or removed. This is the replacement from the Altoona rebuild. I'll bet it weighs 200 pounds.
