The L-1 Class #819 was built by the Cotton Belt’s Pine Bluff, Arkansas shops in 1943 at a cost of $123,607. She was also the last steam locomotive built for the railroad. Weighing in at 736,500lbs, steaming at 250 psi, and saddled on 70″ drivers, the 819 produced an impressive 61,564lb of tractive effort. Her primary usage was on freight. A number of her sister L1’s were leased by the Southern Pacific and reclassified as GS-7 and GS-8. She was retired in 1953 and placed on display at Oakland Park, where she sat until December of 1983 when the newly formed Cotton Belt Rail Historical Society moved the engine back to the Pine Bluff shops and restored the 819 to operating condition in 1986. She ran under until 1993 when she was pulled from service for major work and now resides at the Pine Bluff shops, awaiting a complete restoration and a chance to run once again.

Today: None of the leased SP GS-7/8’s were saved. #819 is the only surviving L1 of the (20) built.

#819 is on display awaiting funds for a full restoration at the Arkansas Railroad Museum in Pine Bluff, AK
