Remarks & Notes 
Photographer- Unknown at this time- possibly R. Hartman. Original 35mm Kodachrome slide Purchased from R. Palmer. Here we find the last Southern Rwy Ps-4 sans tender in Alexandria, VA after an October- November 1961 cosmetic restoration before being entombed in the Smithsonian museum. The #1401 was brought to Alexandria in 1953 where it was stored until 1961 and given a cosmetic restoration. 1401 was then moved into the Smithsonian over the course of 11 days in November and December 1961. The 1401 would then wait patiently until the public would see her again in all her Southern glory in January of 1964.
