Westinghouse Inter-Works Railway 2-6-0 "Mogul" Locomotives in the USA

Class Details by Steve Llanso of Sweat House Media

Class 2 (Locobase 12611)

Data from DeGolyer, Volume 24, p. 247. Works number was 20373 in April 1902.

This was one of the few non-electric locomotives the Westinghouse Electric & Machine Co, a large manufacturer of electrical equipment, would purchase. It was a small Mogul suitable for the complex in which it worked and which had curves as tight as 125' radius.
