About This Content
The C&O railroad like many other railroads were buying the Mikado type locomotives and many improvements were made to the design. By the mid 1920s the C&O decided that its motive power was becoming outdated and started acquiring new 2-8-2s. Between 1924 and 1926 it bought 150 new Mikados from ALCO. The first class they purchased were fifty Class K-2, delivered in 1924 and carried road numbers 1160 through 1209.
The Class K2 had 63 diameter drivers, 28 x 30 cylinders, had a 200 psi boiler pressure and exerted 63,467 pounds. The Class K-2 firebox was 287 square feet. The evaporative heating surface was 4,160 square feet and with the superheater the combined heating surface was 5,333 square feet.
