BTW - what a great looking bunch of locomotives (spare the 1920's Otto
Perry shot). Too few big stack/ringed dome/box headlight locomotives are
with us today. Is it just me, or do others like more profile variation than a
long black tube ? Pre-1900 aesthetics were much better in my book.
The sand dome on #30 is a typical Rogers locomotive and machine works product. Most probably off an old UP standard gauge Rogers built locomotive.

Alright, Mister Smarty-pants ... if those are to be referred to as FLUTED
domes, what are we to call THESE ???
OK - - - I see a couple different flavors of so-called fluted domes. So what?!? Too bad you weren’t around 150+ years ago to have set the semantically challenged Baldwin Locomotive Works folks straight - and thusly spared the ensuing generations, and now us, the discombobulation.
Tell you what - I'll concede if Mallory Hope Ferrell comes around and disavows his research, and, his clear and concise dissertation on the subject, in deference to your insights ...
