BO 2-8-0 #1598
Title:  BO 2-8-0 #1598
Description:  This 1899 Baldwin built Consolidation was caught by F. J. Bandi parked along with others in the Washington, IN, yard. Originally built for the B&OSW as a class H-2 member with the original number of 298, it was acquired by B&O in 1904, reclassified it as E-26 around 1905 and eventually retired 7/19/35. There is still a yard in Washington, IN, which I believe serves CSX now.
