4-2-4 Locomotives in Mexico

The 4-2-4 wheel arrangement is odd in that it had five axles with only one being driven. With a ridged wheelbase these locomotives tended to be slippery. In the USA this wheel arrangement was found on the C. P. Huntington. Chance Rides use this wheel arrangement for their popular two foot C. P. Huntington replicas.
