These Moguls were used as switchers and trailed a slope-back tender as a result.

The BR & P bought this class in 10- and 11-locomotive orders.
Much of the class was sold off in 1905-1906 with the rest being scrapped in 1901-1911. Most of those that were sold were bought by locomotive recycler Southern Iron & Equipment.
Even an old Mogul was a pretty handy locomotive, as the diversity of new owners of some of the Ls suggests. Illinois main line Alton & Southern took 83. 73-74 went West to Washington State's Spokane International, 76 joined the Birmingham & Northwestern as their 22, while 79 landed on Colorado's Roaring Fork Railroad. Still farther flung was 82, which sailed up to the Copper River & Northwestern, which ran 196 miles from Kennicott, Alaska to Cordova.
Finally, 93 to the far-north James Bay Railway, which was planned to head north from Toronto to James Bay, some 265 miles due north. This railway, which had struggled for years with this project, was reorganized in the same year (1905) as the Canadian Northern Ontario Railway (part of the Canadian Northern).
