4-2-0 "Jervis" Locomotives in Cuba
The first 4-2-0 was built for the Mohawk and Hudson Railroad in 1832. It was
and then later renamed Brother Jonathan
The design was based on one by John B. Jervis. The 4-2-0 became popular
in the USA as a replacement for the early 0-4-0s. The 4-2-0 design proved
to be more stable than the 0-4-0.
John B. Jervis was the designer for both the Delaware & Hudson and the Saratoga
& Schenectady railroads. These two railroads were connected via America's
very first junction which was in Schenectady.
