About This Item

Baltimore: Barnard, Roberts & Company Inc.. 1978. Oblong Small Quarto Size [approx 30x23cm]. Very Good condition - a very nice copy. Illustrated with Black & White Photographs and Line Drawings. Robust, professional packaging and tracking provided for all parcels. 219 pages. The 2-8-2 [Mikado] saw great success in the United States, mostly as a freight locomotive. The Mikado type was ousted from the top-flight trains by larger freight locomotive wheel arrangements such as the 2-10-2, 2-8-4, 2-10-4 and articulated locomotives, but no successor type became ubiquitous and the "Mike" remained the most common road freight locomotive with most railroads until the end of steam. The B&O was one of the largest users with 610 locomotives. . 1st Edition. Softcover.
