The Rutland Railroad was under control of the New York Central in the first two decades of the twentieth century, and locomotives built for the Vermont-based carrier during that period were erected to NYC designs and, for a time, carried NYC numbers. The six class F-2j Ten-Wheelers that came from ALCo's Schenectady Works in 1912 were originally numbered 2074-2079, but were renumbered to 74-79 in 1913. No. 75 of the class takes on water at Rutland in March 1948, in an image from Carl Weber's collection. Engines of this class had 69-inch drivers, 22½x26-inch cylinders, and a boiler pressure of 200 p.s.i. Their grate area totaled 58 square feet; they had 2788 square feet of evaporative heating surface, and were built superheated with 582 square feet of surface. They developed 32,430 pounds of tractive effort and weighed 211,000 pounds. Smaller locomotives like these 4-6-0s handled Rutland main line passenger and milk trains until larger power began to arrive with delivery of the first group of Pacifics in 1925; this locomotive was retired in 1951. My father, R. D. Leonard, was a frequent visitor to Vermont, later a pastor in the state, and snapped a photo of an unidentified Rutland Ten-Wheeler on a milk train in 1923.
