New Haven & Dunbar 0-4-2 Locomotives in the USA


Class Details by Steve Llanso of Sweat House Media

Class 15 (Locobase 12600)

Data from Baldwin Locomotive Works Specification for Engines as digitized by the DeGolyer Library of Southern Methodist University Volume 24, p.192. Works number was 20122 in February 1902.

For a seven-mile short line in the coal-mining region of western Pennsylvania, this was a relatively large tank engine of its arrangement. The locomotive had sand domes flanking the steam dome, thus ensuring liberal amounts of traction enhancement as needed.

The railroad was open from 1892 to 1955.
