1871. 2-8-4 TANK
NOT much seems to be known about this Rogers design for a 2-8-4 tank locomotive. It was probably intended for heavy traffic on short runs. The design, being well proportioned, is typical of Rogers. It should be noted that this may have been the first Berkshire type, an engine of a 2-8-4 wheel arrangement, though this term is more correctly applied to locomotives of this plan with tenders. Most of this class of "double-enders" were built for narrow-gauge freight roads.
