The firebox heating surface includes 53 square feet of arch tubes and the piston valves measured 15" in diameter. Number 800's firebox received a makeover in January 1939 during which the number of arch tubes was cut to 18 square feet in total, but 106 square feet of thermic syphons was added to boost firebox heating surface to 415 square feet.
Six of the M-1s were scrapped during the 1930's but number 800 lasted until the end of steam.
There are no surviving CGW 2-10-2 "Santa Fe" type locomotives.

|M-1||7||800-806||1916||Baldwin||Six of these locomotives were scrapped the 1930.s. Number 800 lasted until the end of steam.|
Firebox heating surface includes 53 sq ft (4.9 sq m) in five arch tubes. Piston valves measured 15" (381 mm) in diameter.
Much the biggest engine design delivered to the CGW before the 2-10-4s of the 1930s, these low-drivered engines operated at a relatively low 180 psi.
800's firebox received a makeover in January 1939 during which the number of arch tubes was cut to 18 sq ft (1.7 sq m) total, but 106 sq ft (9.85 sq m) of thermic syphons was added to boost firebox heating surface to 415 sq ft (38.55 sq m).
(Drury's (1993) tractive effort figure of 43,440 lb looks like a miskey, but he is incorrect in his statement that the railroad's Mikados generated considerably more. Once the Texas engines came on the road in the 1930s, six of these drag-freight locomotives were scrapped. The class leader lasted until the end of steam.
