||Baltimore & Ohio RR 2-8-8-4 #7629
||This massive 2-8-8-4 Yellowstone type locomotive was built by Baldwin in 1944. According to one source, B&O wanted more diesels but was stuck taking this due to the war limitations on engine construction. The class EM-1 unit sported 64" drivers, engine wt of a hefty 628,700 lb, developed 235 psi and had an overall engine+tender wheelbase of a whopping 112.5'. One massive locomotive!
