I stumbled onto that that full Erie car photo too, Schuyler, while looking over that beautiful C of G steam power and agree
that all three of the stirrup steps seen are angled inward.
The heater is of the Elesco family and is usually refered to as a "coil" instead of the more familiar "bundle" as the tubular
design is called. If you ever saw all of the Steamtwn ex-CPR G-5 class 4-6-2's you may have photographed #1293 with the
same style of "coil" unit thought they came with slightly different shapes as well rather than only different sizes like the "coil"
God to meet you at the NEPRO meet, Don Valentine
