The Boston & Maine Railroad leased five 2-8-2s from the Erie Railroad and they
arrived in April of 1942. On the B&M they were designated as Class N and were
numbered 2801 through 2805. These "Mikado" type locomotives were deemed
unsatisfactory for service on the B&M and were retuned to the Erie just a few
months after they arrived.
