Class Details by Steve Llanso of Sweat House Media

Class 2 (Locobase 15031)

Data from Roy V Wright (Ed.) 1912 Locomotive Cyclopedia of American Practice, Sixth Edition (New York: Simmons-Boardman Publishing Company, 1912), p. 155. Works number 1109 in May 1910.

This Newport, Ky steel mill began as the Globe Iron Roofing and Corrugation Company in Cincinnati and was reformed as ASC in 1908.

The saddle-tanker shown in this entry had an unusually high-pitched boiler that stood well clear of the running gear and had a continuous top line from headlight to the back of the cab.
