CO 4-6-4 #490
Title:  CO 4-6-4 #490
Description:  One of the most striking streamlined locomotive ever built IMHO. Originally built as a 4-6-2 by Alco-Richmond in 1926, the C&O shops completely rebuilt it into a 4-6-4 streamlined Hudson for passenger service in 1947 and reclassified as an L-1 class. Date and location are approximate. HSV photo credit

CO 490
Title:  CO 490
Description:  Big, unique, and impressive C&O steam is on display at the B&O museum. 490 is the sole surviver of only four streamlined Hudson type (4-6-4) locomotives owned by the Chesapeake & Ohio Railroad. It was rebuilt by the C&O in 1946 from a Pacific type (4-6-2) locomotive. The original Pacific was built by the Richmond division of the American Locomotive Company (ALCO) in 1926. 490 was donated to the Baltimore & Ohio Museum in Baltimore, MD in 1971 from the C&O Historical Collection. It is also the only surviving streamlined (shrouded) Hudson.
