2-10-2 "Santafe" Locomotives in the USA
The Maine Central did not buy any new "Santa Fe" type locomotives, however
it did buy eight second-hand 2-10-2s from the Boston & Maine. These eight
locomotives came during the years of 1936 to 1947. They were designated
as Class A on the MEC and they were given road numbers 651 through 658.
There are no surviving MEC 2-10-2 "Santa Fe" type locomotives.
