The B&O EM-1 2-8-8-4 Locomotive

In 1944, The B&O Railroad acquired its greatest modern steam locomotive, the EM-1 2-8-8-4, from the Baldwin Locomotive Works in Philadelphia. By the end of 1945, B&O would have 30 of these locomotives. This engine represented the pinnacle of steam power. Also known as the Yellowstone type, at 125 feet in length and over one million pounds, these giants had power and speed. They matched up well against some of the largest and most well known steam engines in the country. Unfortunately, none of these magnificent engines survived the scrap yard. Pictured is #7610 working through the "S" curves near Manila, MD, one of the steepest parts of Sand Patch Grade.
