Class Details by Steve Llanso of Sweat House Media

Class Mogul (Locobase 2558)

Works number was 1235 in January 1865.

The first of the Mogul wheel arrangement, this Rogers design featured William Hudson's variation of the basic Bissell truck. Hudson substituted swing links for the Bissell's inclined planes and used a compensating lever to connect the truck spring action to those of the equalized driver sets. It later bore Pennsylvania Railroad road number 739.

As a light freight engine, the 2-6-0 proved quite popular and successful.
