Winans became the B&O's Assistant Engineer of Machinery at the Mount Clare Shops. The loco is now preserved at the B&O Museum. Specs - 50-inch drivers, 65 psi boiler pressure, combined with 19x22-inch cylinders, engine weight of 129,100 pounds, and produced 8,775 pounds of tractive force. From the collection of Harold K.
