Rutland 4-8-2 No. 93 represents the L-1 class in this ALCo builder's photo, part of a 1946 publicity post card issued by the railroad, that came from my father's collection of railroadiana. These engines had 73-inch disc drivers and 26x30-inch cylinders, and a boiler pressure of 230 p.s.i. These dimensions gave them 54,300 pounds of tractive effort. They had 3919 square feet of evaporative heating service and 1152 square feet of superheater surface, and a grate area of 67 square feet. While of modest specifications, weighing 348,000 pounds, they were a pleasing design and were painted green — being dubbed the "Green Hornets" by Rutland crews. As a boy I saw one of them in passenger service at Rutland during a family trip to Vermont, and have never forgotten the moaning of the brakes as it brought its train to a halt.
