In 1927 and 1929, Baldwin Locomotive Works constructed 50 beefy 0-8-0 switch engines in class C-3 for the Erie Railroad. With 52-inch drivers, they had cylinder dimensions of 25x28 inches and a boiler pressure of 200 p.s.i. Their specifications included 2765 square feet of evaporative heating surface, 635 square feet of superheating surface, and 47 square feet of grate area. They weighed 212,000 pounds and exerted a tractive effort of 57,200 pounds. Like many Erie steam locomotives, they featured the Vanderbilt tender with its cylindrical water tank. Otherwise, their specifications and appearance were similar to those of the EJ&E 0-8-0 switcher previously described. This view of No. 201, for which no details are available, was contributed by Wayne Koch.
