C&O 2-10-4 #3035 - Chesapeake & Ohio RR
Title:  C&O 2-10-4 #3035 - Chesapeake & Ohio RR
Description:  Nice looking 1930 Lima built Texas type 2-10-4 locomotive sitting in the Russell, KY, yard approximately a year after being delivered for heavy service between Russell, KY, and Toledo, OH. According to www.steamlocomotive. com "The Chesapeake & Ohio Railroad designed a new Class of freight locomotive to satisfy its needs for motive power. They tested an Erie Berkshire then basically stretched the Erie design adding one set of drivers, creating a 2-10-4 that was both powerful and fast. The C&O ordered forty of it new design "Texas" type locomotives from the Lima Locomotive Works in 1930. These locomotives were designated as Class T-1 and were assigned road number 3000 through number 3039. They had 69" diameter drivers, 29" x 34" cylinders, a 265 psi boiler pressure, exerted 93,345 pounds of tractive effort and each weighed 566,000 pounds. The locomotives were equipped with a trailing truck booster that exerted 15,275 pounds of tractive effort. This basic design was used for most 2-10-4s constructed after 1930." R.W. Legg photo
