CV 2-10-4 #700 - Central Vermont
Title:  CV 2-10-4 #700 - Central Vermont
Description:  Beefy, solid 1928 Alco-Schenectady built Texas-type locomotive. Specifics - class T-3a, 10 built, 60" drivers, 250 psi boiler pressure, 27"x32" cylinders, engine weight 419,000 lb, tractive effort of 82,620 lb. One online source states "They were relatively light, small, and low-drivered. Nevertheless, these engines rattled windows and shook the ground, according to a December 1993 Trains recollection. And they weren't kind to the rails." The ten were all scrapped between 1954-59. Date and location are approximate. No photographer listed.
