ATSF MIKADO 2-8-2


The first Mikado type locomotives on the ATSF came from the
Baldwin Locomotive Works in 1902 and 1903. They were assigned road numbers 885
through 899. These 2-8-2s were Vauclain compounds with a wide firebox,

which extended over the rear wheels. They were converted to simple locomotives
in 1908 and saw service for the

next four decades. In 1913, the next group of Mikados was purchased from
Baldwin. This group was assigned road

numbers 3100 through 3128. They had the same basic design as the converted
locomotives of 1908, which included

57 diameter drivers, 25 x 32 cylinders, a 170 psi boiler pressure and a
tractive effort of 50,700 pounds.



In 1916 more 2-8-2s arrived, when Baldwin delivered a group of thi ty, which
were given road numbers 3129 through

3158. These locomotives had 57 diameter drivers, 25 x 32 cylinders, a 200 psi
boiler pressure and they exerted

56,650 pounds of tractive effort.



Between 1917 and 1920, the AT&SF received a total of 128 more Mikados. The
locomotives of this group were

assigned road numbers 3160 through 3287 and were about 20 tons heavier than the
earlier ones. They had 63 diameter

drivers, 27 x 32 cylinders, a 200 psi boiler pressure and they exerted 62, 950
pounds of tractive effort. The

last group of new 2-8-2s to be added to the roster was a group of 101 built by
Baldwin between 1921 and 1926. This

group, road numbers 4000 through 4100 had the same specifications as the
3160-3287 locomotives and represents

the set of Mikados Broadway Limited is producing.



There are two surviving AT&SF 2-8-2 Mikado type locomotives. These two
locomotives (numbers 3167 and 4076)

were lost in a flood in 1952 and are now sunk in the Kaw River in Topeka, KS. --
