The J-2c group of B&A Hudsons weighed 356,500 pounds and had a tractive effort of 44,210 pounds, augmented by 10,520 pounds from their boosters. Their grate area totaled 81.5 square feet, their evaporative heating surface 4484 square feet, and their superheating surface 1951 square feet. The J-2s had shorter eight-wheeled tenders because distances between terminals on the B&A were not as great as on the lines outside New England. Sometime after delivery they were rebuilt with the larger-capacity square sand dome as shown in this photo that John F. Boose of La Grange, Illinois snapped at West Springfield, Massachusetts on August 7, 1938. This locomotive became NYC 5472 in 1951, and was scrapped in 1952.
