BUILT under the direction of A. J. Stevens, master mechanic
of the Central Pacific Railroad, at the Sacramento Shops, this
2-6-2 tank engine was designed for suburban passenger service.
Such heavy trains required powerful engines in the morning and
evening rush hours for the run between Alameda and Oakland wharf
which extended two miles out in the bay, and this class of motive
power was the result.
