Central Vermont 2-10-4 No. 707 appears at St. Albans, Vermont on April 27, 1949 in this photo by Bill Corben of Kansas City, Missouri that came to our collection through an eBay purchase. These class T-3-a Texas types pulled with 76,800 pounds of tractive effort, which was raised to 89,900 when the trailing booster engine was cut in giving them the highest tractive effort of any locomotive on the Canadian National system. (Other specifications appear in the preceding commentary for No. 705.) They had 4703 square feet of evaporative heating surface, 2208 square feet of superheating surface, and 84 square feet of grate area. All were retired and scrapped between 1954 and 1959.
