The 2-8-0 steam engines was first developed in 1864-1865 to provide power for heavy trains, at a moderate speed, especially on steep grades. Alexander Mitchell, the chief mechanic for the Lehigh and Maloney Railroad, and eastern Pennsylvania coal hauler, designed the original 2-8-0. The Pennsylvania Railroad (PRR) was the first to put the 2-8-0 type engine on the rails when they rebuilt a Baldwin flexible-beam engine to a 2-8-0 configuration. For more then forty years, the 2-8-0 Consolidation was America's standard freight locomotive, working hard on virtually every railroad. Locomotive Measures: 18 3/4" x 2 1/2" x 3"
