The Rutland Railroad's class G-34a Consolidations came from American Locomotive Company's Schenectady Works from 1907 through 1914. No. 23, one of the last of the group to operate, appears here at Alburgh, Vermont on April 5, 1949 in a photo attributed to Paul B. Dunn of Zanesville, Ohio. Equipped with Stephenson valve gear and inside valves to the very end, these 2-8-0s rolled on 63-inch drivers and had cylinder dimensions of 22½x30 inches. Sustaining a boiler pressure of 195 p.s.i., they mustered 39,958 pounds of tractive effort. Their evaporative heating surface totaled 2251 square feet and their superheating surface 537 square feet, with their grate area reaching to slightly more than 50 square feet. The G-34 classification was a holdover from the early 1900s when the Rutland was under the control of the New York Central.
