This slightly enlarged version of the Ogdensburg & Lake Champlain Moguls shown in Locobase11881 were bought by the Central Vermont and assigned to its O&LC division. So the cabs of these engines were numbered differently from the tenders.
Out of the nine in the class, five remained with the CV throughout their forty-year careers and are shown in this entry. Originally numbered 95, 97, 98, 94, and 96, these were renumbered 324, 326, 327, 323, and 325 in 1900.
The other four would serve on the Rutland before ending their days on the New York Central & Hudson River as E-17s. See Locobase 15845 for the differences that resulted from a new boiler later in their careers.
While this Mogul was delivered to the VC (a predecessor of the Central Vermont), it was soon sold to the Rutland & Burlington. The R&B, the first incarnation of the Rutland Railroad, renamed the engine America and numbered it 38. The Rutland leased the 38 to the Central Vermont in 1891 as their 228 and later 24.
Renumbered 370 and designated E-1, the 370 came under New York Central control in 1904 and was renumbered 1879 and redesignated Ex. As such, it was scrapped in June 1909.
