Beautiful Vintage Picture of the C & O Locomotive #2315 Chesapeake & Ohio 2-8-2 with Frame.
The Chesapeake & Ohio's first, larger class of freight locomotives included its fleet of 2-8-2 Mikados.
The name "Mikado" (referring to a Japanese emperor) was applied to a batch of narrow-gauge 2-8-2s manufactured by the Baldwin Locomotive Works for Japan Railways in 1893. As the 20th century dawned the wheel arrangement slowly took hold and the first railroad to employ the design in standard road service was coal-hauler Virginian Railway during 1909.
These steamers first entered service before World War I and the railroad continued buying them through the 1920s, until the company switched to purchasing "Super Power" designs (beginning with the 2-10-4's of 1930 followed by even more powerful models through World War II).
