The Erie's N-2 class of Mikados were constructed by Alco's Brooks Works in 1918 to the USRA heavy 2-8-2 design. They weighed 320,000 pounds and delivered 59,800 pounds of tractive effort. With cylinders of 27x32 inches, they featured 190 p.s.i. of boiler pressure and the usual 63-inch Mikado driver diameter. Their grate area measured 71 square feet, their evaporative heating surface totaled 4296 square feet, and their superheating surface measured 993 square feet. In this image of N-2 No. 3209 from the Wayne Koch collection the locomotive appears to be in storage with the stack covered, suggesting a time during the Great Depression of the 1930s. No information exists concerning the photographer and location.
