2-6-0 "Mogul" Locomotives in the USA

Charcoal Iron Company Mogul

The first North American example of this type of locomotive was built for the Louisiana & Nashville Railroad in 1864. At the time it was the largest locomotive and got its name from the Mohammedan Empire (India). more than 11,000 Moguls were built between 1860 and 1910. They were generally used on freight trains but had enough speed to occasionally pull a light passenger train.
