Title:  C&O 2-8-8-2 #1544 - Chesapeake & Ohio RR
Description:  Interesting original photo of the Alco-Schenectady 2-8-8-2 "Chesapeake-type" locomotive delivered to the C&O in 1924. Known as "Simple Simons" or "Simons" (according to C&O Power) because they operated as simple-expansion articulateds, unlike the earlier compound Mallets. Specifics - H-7 class, 57" drivers, 215 psi boiler pressure, 23x32" cylinders, engine weight of 567,500 lb, impressive tractive effort of 108,547 lb. R.W. Legg photo
