Class Details by Steve Llanso of Sweat House Media

Class 98 (Locobase 5365)

Data from table in June 1907 AERJ. See also DeGolyer, Vol 29, p. 248. Works number was 30000 in January 1907.

Simple-expansion version of the Atchison, Topeka & Santa Fe tandem compound that used exactly the same boiler and firebox.

The PS & N (using Pittsburg without the "H") was a Western New York railroad that ran down into Pennsylvania.

The engine had a relatively short career before being scrapped in April 1930.
