Cornwall & Lebanon 2-8-0 "Consolidation" Locomotives in the USA


Class Details by Steve Llanso of Sweat House Media

Class 14 (Locobase 11689)

Data from Baldwin Locomotive Works Specification for Engines, 1888, as digitized by the DeGolyer Library of Southern Methodist University Vol 16, p. 6.

Works number was 10801 in April 1890.

This relatively hefty Consolidation served the C & L for almost 30 years before that railroad was taken over by the Pennsylvania and renumbered 3690. It was soon scrapped.
