I have seen this one before..it was taken at Bellefontaine, OH, probably prior to November, 1948. (In another view, this engine is not yet equipped with a dual seal beam headlight, and I think that the records show that most or all had the headlight conversion in November, 1948.) - Larry Baggerly collection

About NYC 6011 at Bellefontaine:
Thanks so much for the 6011 and 6016...I never get tired of seeing Niagara photos. (Perhaps that's why I have over 400 of them....!)
I remember reading that all of the 6000's were transferred to the Big Four in 1954. Most of them were out of service by August, 1955. (The Big Four wheel report for 12/54 shows mileage for 6000, 6002, 6005, 6014, 6020, and 6022. All of the others were on lines west, with 6004, 6006, 6008-15 inclusive, 6017, 6021, and 6025 awaiting shop.) The 6016 was out of service at Toledo by August, 1955. The Lines west for 12/55 shows mileage for 6000, 6015, 6019, 6020, 6023, and 6024.
So my somewhat educated guess is that the photos you included were taken either in the summer of 1954 or perhaps less likely, the summer of 1955?!
Shoulda saved one......and also a 5400. Perleman may have been intelligent, but there are things I will never forget him for.....
