The Kansas City Southern bought ten class J 2-10-4 or Texas type locomotives from Lima Locomotive Works in 1937. Five (Nos. 900-904) were oil burners, while five (Nos. 905-909) burned coal. No. 900 posed for this builder's photo. These engines had a grate area of 107 square feet, 5154 square feet of evaporative heating surface, and 2075 square feet of superheater surface, rendering them fine examples of Lima's "Super-Power" emphasis. Additional specifications are presented in the commentary on No. 906.
