The locomotives' original tenders carried 4,000 US gallons (15,140 litres) of water and weighed 80,000 lb (36,287 kg) fully loaded.
When the Nickel Plate took over the TSt&W in June 1923, they renumbered the class 820-825 and operated them for almost six years longer before retiring the class in January 1929.
Builder info from B.Rumary, 25 Kingscombe, Gurney Slade, Radstock, BA3 4TH, ENGLAND and Jeremy Lambert as supplied by Allen Stanley in March 2004.
Works numbers were 1629-1633 in March 1890. Rumary-Lambert credit the class with 19" cylinders, which they may have received some time after their initial delivery.
Low-drivered light Mogul for the Nickel Plate, as the New York, Chicago, and St. Louis was known. The class was renumbered in 1910 with retirements beginning only a few years later in 1913 (2). Two more were withdrawn in 1914 and 219 was scrapped in June 1916.
