WM 4-6-2 #154 - Western Maryland
Title:  WM 4-6-2 #154 - Western Maryland
Description:  Nice example of a 1909 Burnham, Wms & Co (Baldwin) light Pacific, class K-1. Concerning these small Pacifics, author John Bohon was quoted as saying "Contrary to what is stated the WM did not find the K-1 too small or slippery. In fact the opposite was very true. Men from the era considered these little pacifics fine locomotives. The only complaint I ever heard was they were a little more precise to fire than the newer K-2. Many of the oldtimers considered the K-1, or hundred and fifties as they called them, the best looking locomotives the railroad ever owned. I include myself in those who think that way." Eventually the entire class was sold to the power-short Seaboard Air Lines in 1943 for passenger service and survived until retirement between June, 1950-August, 1952.
