THE LOCOMOTIVE

AHM5097-02 C&O Class L-2 4-6-4 Hudson Locomotive #302

The Chesapeake & Ohio Railroad introduced a new type of locomotive to its road in 1941. This new locomotive was the 4-6-4 and eight of them were ordered from the Baldwin Locomotive Works. They had roller bearings on all axles. One of them, number 300, had roller bearings on its side and main rods as well. 300 was also unique in that it had Union Pacific style "elephant ear" smoke deflectors applied some time around 1948. It was one of only two C&O locomotives to receive this modification. The C&O was content to use the northern name associated with this new locomotive, Hudson, and numbered these Class L-2s 300 through 307. Although they had the same name as the NYC's Hudson’s these C&O Hudson’s were much larger than the NYC's J-1s. (From steamlocomotive.com)


In 1948, five more Hudson’s were ordered from Baldwin and numbered 310 through 314. These were designated as class L-2-A. As it turned out, these were the last passenger steam locomotives built by Baldwin. They were also the heaviest Hudson’s ever built.
