NO. 2092 4-6-2
TEN of these locomotives replacing lighter Pacifics were delivered in 1924 and two more built in the company's shops were put in service the following year. They were used for heavy passenger traffic between Newark and Buffalo, handling without assistance trains of nine cars between Mauch Chunk and Glen Summit Springs, where the grades are 69 feet to the mile. They are fully modern 4-6-2's in that they are equipped with boosters, stokers, and superheaters.
