Fluted Domes Redux

Just before I headed out west, a little birdie put me onto this Gazette article =







Note especially the (now enlarged) insert =



I guess if Baldwin, the locomotive manufacturer, got away with calling them “fluted domes” back in the day, according to Mallory Hope Ferrell’s source material, then that’s plenty good enough for me …

  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.

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 ...

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.
