Reflecting their mid 1890s origins, these engines had the older style of dome over the firebox and a coned boiler. On the other hand, the boiler pressure is relatively high.
Itself a product of earlier foreclosures and restructurings, this railroad was reorganized in 1902 as the Quincy, Omaha & Kansas City (CB&Q). All of the Ten-wheelers in this were renumbered at that point.
At least two and possibly all ten of the locomotives were sold by the Burlington to the Chicago & Illinois Midland in 1926. The two that definitely briefly served the C&IM were ex-24 and 25, in class A-2 and enumbered first 5-6, then 505-506. Both were scrapped in 1929. If the other eight did indeed transfer to the C&IM, they were scrapped very shortly thereafter., although the scrapping dates suggest that they never left the QO&KC.
Fitting right in with the period in which they were built, these light Tenwheelers had the older style of dome over the firebox, small narrow grate, and a coned boiler. The spread between the 2nd and 3rd drivers was almost 4' greater than that between the first and 2nd.
