Class Details by Steve Llanso of Sweat House Media

Class 100/311/500 (Locobase 7156)

Data from the C&EI 11 - 1911 Locomotive Diagram book supplied in May 2005 by Allen Stanley from his extensive Rail Data Exchange. Works numbers were 3860, 3864 in December 1887.

When the E&TH merged into the Chicago & Eastern Illinois in 1911, these two aging medium-sized Moguls were renumbered 500-501. They were scrapped in 1916.


Class 102/313/502 (Locobase 7157)

Data from the C&EI 11 - 1911 Locomotive Diagram book supplied in May 2005 by Allen Stanley from his extensive Rail Data Exchange. Works numbers were 2331-2334 in January 1890.


Class 3/M-19 (Locobase 7118)

Data from C&EI 6 - 1904 locomotive diagram book supplied in May 2005 by Allen Stanley from his extensive Rail Data Exchange. See also DeGolyer, Volume 19, p. 185. Works numbers were 14164-14165 in November 1894.

The diagram shows a long-boilered Mogul of typical dimensions for the time. The Chicago & Eastern Illinois assumed control of the CP&M in February 1897 and the 3-4 became the 28-29.

28 was sold to A L Clark Lumber in April 1907. By 1910 it had been sold to Nashville Lumber Company's (of Nashville, Ark) Memphis, Paris & Gulf as their 31.The MP&G became the Memphis, Dallas & Gulf and the 31 was renumbered 400. In August 1922, the 400 went to the Graysonia, Nashville & Ashdown in Arkansas.

29 was renumbered and reclassed in 1911. At that time, it trailed a tender holding 2,830 US gallons (10,712 litres) of water and 8 tons (7.27 metric tons) of coal. The 322 was sold for scrap in 1913.


Class 30 (Locobase 7119)

Data from the C&EI 6 - 1904 Locomotive Diagram book supplied in May 2005 by Allen Stanley from his extensive Rail Data Exchange. Hinkley production data is incomplete, but several sources identify works numbers 1315 (road 30 in January 1880) and 1478-1482 in January 1882 (road 38-42).

Hinkley's contribution to the C & EI's Mogul holding came early and in surprising strength. Compared to other 2-6-0s of the time, these had relatively small boilers, but a good supply of direct heating surface.


Class 304/70 (Locobase 7124)

Data from the C&EI 6 - 1904 Locomotive Diagram book supplied in May 2005 by Allen Stanley from his extensive Rail Data Exchange. See also DeGolyer, Volume 14, p. 137Works numbers were 9203-9204 in April 1888; 9238, 9241 9244, 9247 in May.

A year after Hinkley sold its second group of Moguls (Locobase 7123) to the C&EI, Baldwin contributed a sextet built to the same specs. The only difference was slightly shorter boiler tubes, which accounts for the small difference in heating surface area. Otherwise, they were identical.

A photograph in the Willard LibraryRail Data Exchange -- http://www.willard.lib.in.us/photos/card617.html (accessed 25 Nov 2005) of #72 shows the widespread driving axle layout, long, slender boiler, and a front truck wheel that has an odd spoke design. The spokes curve to the left as they run out from the hub and create the illusion of petals.

72 was later sold to the Texas State Railroad.


Class 323/92 (Locobase 7160)

Data from C&EI 11 - 1911 Locomotive Diagram book supplied in May 2005 by Allen Stanley from his extensive Rail Data Exchange. Works numbers were 3746-3749 in April 1892, 3988-3991 in December, 4006-4013 in February 1893.

Among all the small classes of Moguls -- two-three locomotives with similar specs -- the C&EI fielded this relatively numerous group. The profile is a little odd -- the firebox is still quite narrow (32 1/2" wide) but it sits over the rear two driving axles rather than between them; even so, the last two driving axles were nine feet apart as opposed to the seven-foot gap between the first and second. The steam dome was moved forward to sit over the first set of drivers, which elongated the boiler crown and shortened the first course behind the stack.

Five of the sixteen--323, 328-330, 332--were scrapped in 1917, 331 in October 1918, 333 in October 1920, and the rest in December 1920.


Class 46/M-17 (3), M-16 (1) (Locobase 7154)

Data from C&EI 11 - 1911 Locomotive Diagram book supplied in May 2005 by Allen Stanley from his extensive Rail Data Exchange.

These began their careers as the 2-6-6T tank engines (Locobase 7120) that arrived on the C&EI in 1892-1893. When the railway began using the then-new Lasalle Street Station, the suburban tanks were surplus and the road began rebuilding them as these Moguls. 46 and 48 were converted in 1897, 47 in 1904, and 49 in 1907.


Class 66 (Locobase 7123)

Data from the C&EI 6 - 1904 Locomotive Diagram book supplied in May 2005 by Allen Stanley from his extensive Rail Data Exchange. Works numbers were 1684-1688 in 1887.

Seven years after the first big Hinkley sale to the C&EI (Locobase 7119), the company supplied these Moguls. A bit larger than the earlier batch, they followed much of the same lines and presented a long wheelbase for the size of the boiler.


Class 87-91/305/87 (Locobase 7155)

Data from C&EI 11 - 1911 Locomotive Diagram book supplied in May 2005 by Allen Stanley from his extensive Rail Data Exchange. Works numbers were 3348-3350 in January 1891, 3373-3374 in April.


Class F-2 (Locobase 7158)

Data from the C&EI 11 - 1911 Locomotive Diagram book supplied in May 2005 by Allen Stanley from his extensive Rail Data Exchange. Works numbers were 2117-2119 in June 1891.

This trio of Moguls started out on the E & TH where they presented a good study in 1890s 2-6-0 design with the added feature of triple-paned cab windows. See the photo in Evansville, IN Willard Library photoRail Data Exchange -- http://www.willard.lib.in.us/photos/card616.html (accessed 25 Nov 2005).

In the next decade, the E & TH was taken over by the Chicago & Eastern Illinois, which renumbered these engines twice before retirement.
