PRR 373, HH-1, 1947
Title:  PRR 373, HH-1, 1947
Description:  Coal Power. Here is an original photo by an unidentified photographer that was taken in Columbus, Ohio, on 10 October 1947. Shown here is Pennsylvania Railroad engine #373, an HH-1 (2-8-8-2) built by the American Locomotive Company as Norfolk & Western Railroad number "2000" during February of 1919, sold to the PRR and renumbered "373" in July of 1943, and retired in November of 1947 after 28 years of two-system service. This locomotive may have been involved in a wreck: the front of the smoke box is gone, as is part of the left cylinder assembly, and the pilot steps are bent back.

CO 2-8-8-2 #1541 - Chesapeake & Ohio
Title:  CO 2-8-8-2 #1541 - Chesapeake & Ohio
Description:  Massive is not descriptive enough for this Alco-Schenectady 2-8-8-2 locomotive named a "Chesapeake" wheel configuration by C&O. This was delivered to C&O in December of 1923 as #1100 but renumbered in 1926. For some reason the railroad replaced 1124 with 1540 and 1100 with 1541 with the rest of the class receiving 1542-1564 in order. Known as "Simple Simons" or "Simons" (according to C&O Power) because they operated as simple-expansion articulateds, unlike the earlier compound Mallets. Specifics - 57" drivers, 215 psi boiler pressure, 23x32" cylinders, engine weight of 567,500 lb, impressive tractive effort of 108,547 lb. from C.W. Jernstrom collection

CO 2-8-8-2 #1558 - Chesapeake & Ohio
Title:  CO 2-8-8-2 #1558 - Chesapeake & Ohio
Description:  One of the original 25 built by Alco in 1924, this H-7 class "Chesapeake" type locomotive was able to pull 9,500 ton trains over the 113 mile run from Russell, Kentucky to Columbus, Ohio in 5 hours according to www.steamlocomotive.com. This wheel type soon replaced teh 2-10-4 and the 2-6-6-6 Alleghenies in the territory. A real power monster! Unfortunately no location, date or photographer credit was listed for this photo. Looks like West Virginia or Kentucky from the background.

CO 2-8-8-2 #1564 - Chesapeake & Ohio
Title:  CO 2-8-8-2 #1564 - Chesapeake & Ohio
Description:  This massive loco almost has the appearance of two 2-8-0's mashed together under one cowling shell and probably why Southern Pacific referred to these locos as "Mallet Consolidations". Built by Alco-Schenectady in December of 1923, this 2-8-8-2 wheel configuration was dubbed the "Chesapeake" by C&O and was classified as H-7. Originally this unit was numbered 1126 but renumbered in 1926. Known as "Simple Simons" or "Simons" (according to C&O Power) because they operated as simple-expansion articulateds, unlike the earlier compound Mallets. Specifics - 57" drivers, 215 psi boiler pressure, 23x32" cylinders, engine weight of 567,500 lb, impressive tractive effort of 108,547 lb. from C.W. Jernstrom collection

Title:  DRGW 2-8-8-2 #3616 - Denver & Rio Grande Western

Photo credit to Roy F. Blackburn. Location was given as Tunnel, CO. I'm assuming that it means Tunnel #1 in Colorado. Let me know if it's incorrect.
