DLW 4-8-2 #2228 - Delaware, Lackawanna & Western
Title:  DLW 4-8-2 #2228 - Delaware, Lackawanna & Western
Description:  Built by Alco-Schenectady in 1927, this "Mountain type" locomotive exudes power even as it sits quietly in an unknown yard, possibly DLW Scranton yard. Specifics - class P-5, 63" drivers, two 25x32" cylinders, one 25x28" cylinders, 200 psi boiler pressure, engine weight of 397,500 lb, tractive effort of 77,579 lb. According to steamlocomotive.com website, "Because these freight locomotives put less demand for maintenance on that hard-to-get-at center cylinder, the Lackawanna left the arrangement intact throughout the class's lifetime. Retirement came in 1946-1950." Photo by J.P.G.

Illinois Central 4-8-2 #2410
Title:  Illinois Central 4-8-2 #2410
Description:  This 1923 Alco "Mountain" type locomotive was listed by the IC as the 2400 class following the guidelines of naming the class after the first number in the series. These units gave the IC much needed speed and increased pulling power for longer, heavier trains. The Paducah shops then built 76 more Mountain type locos between 1937-43 patterned after these first ones. This is a May, 1970 reprint from C.W. Burns original negative taken at 27th Street in Chicago. .

IC 4-8-2 #2411 - Illinois Central
Title:  IC 4-8-2 #2411 - Illinois Central
Description:  Nice photo from a direct scan of the original negative and it appears that it is newly delibered 4-8-2 Mountain type locomotive built by Alco-Schenectady in 1923. No date or location was given but with Mary Rae McPherson's help (see comment below), I now believe it was taken in Chicago, IL, possibly 27th Street. The date is possibly 1923 as it appears to be a newly delivered locomotive. Specs - class 2400, builder #64580, 73.5" drivers, impressive 225 psi boiler pressure, 24x28" cylinders, engine wt 362,500 lb, tractive effort of 57,120 lb. Unknown photographer.
