Four IC 2600-class 4-8-2's are seen under construction in this photo taken inside the Paducah, KY, shops, in January, 1943.  According to the note on the back of the print, the frame for 2608 is on the near track, while 2607, 2606, and 2605 (with the cab installed) are on the next tracks over.

4-8-2's 2600-2619 were built between November, 1942, and August, 1943.  After the steam era ended, several tenders from the 2600's were saved and reused to haul diesel fuel, but all of the locomotives themselves were scrapped.
