Grand Trunk 2-2-0 Locomotives in Canada

Class Details by Steve Llanso of Sweat House Media

Class Inspection car (Locobase 13599)

Data from Baldwin Locomotive Works Specification for Engines as digitized by the DeGolyer Library of Southern Methodist University, Volume 34, p. 246. (Thanks to Chris Hohl for his 22 February 2021 email correcting the valve gear and water capacity.) Works number 34434 in March 1910.

In the specifications, Baldwin noted that it would supply the "loco parts only" and forward that assembly to Montreal "..where Grand Trunk Ry will build car body and mount it on engine."
