Chicago Milwaukee St. Paul & Pacific

4-4-2s

 

Perhaps we should let you know how these pages get started. When I was still emailing images, one that I sent was of Milwaukee Road 577 pulling some of the Class A Hiawatha engines to scrap. Since we no longer are limited to single images, I thought it might be fun to show the A's while in service. Then the thought came, "Why just show the A's when there were other 4-4-2's." And thus we have this report. But then we received a large amount of additional information.

3001, Class A-1as, was built by Baldwin in May 1896, #14862, as 839, Class A-1. It was renumbered 401 in April 1899 and 901 in April 1901 and 3001 in November 1912. It was rebuilt in 1921 as Class A-1a and between 1925 and 1929 as Class A-1as. It was renumbered 20 in July 1938 and was scrapped on November 30, 1935.

The Class A Hiawatha engines were built by Alco in 3 orders. 1 and 2 were built in 1935, 3 in 1936, and 4 in 1937. They remained unchanged during their service except for the addition of red mars lights in 1947, and bumps and dents over the years. Here are the 4 of them.

1, Class A, was built by Alco-Schenectady in May 1935, #68684. It was retired on November 9, 1951.

2, Class A, was built by Alco-Schenectady in May 1935, #68685. It was retired on November 9, 1951.

3, Class A, was built by Alco-Schenectady in May 1936, #68729. It was retired on September 15, 1949.

4, Class A, was built by Alco-Schenectady in April 1937, #68828. It was retired on June 8, 1951.

And here is the photo which started this discussion and is a fitting close. 577 (L-2a, Baldwin January 1921, ex 8277 in June 1938) is seen leaving Milwaukee with several of the A's on their way to scrap in Chicago. A sad sight. And then the 577 was scrapped in December 1953.
