Southern Ontario is the setting for this photograph of Wabash Railroad 2-6-2 (Prairie type) No. 2022, though no other information about its origin is available. Tom Rock of Rock on Trains provided the image from his collection. The 2-6-2 type was favored by some railroads in the Midwest and West during the early twentieth century. After larger power was introduced these Prairies were sidelined into local or branch line service, but the Wabash rostered 99 members of this G-1 class as late as 1940. They were built by Baldwin and ALCo in 1906-07 in two groups differing mainly in driving wheel diameter; No. 2022 belonged to the first group that had 70-inch drivers. After being equipped with a superheater they had 2805 square feet of evaporative heating surface and 613 square feet of superheating surface; grate area measured 54 square feet. Cylinder dimensions were 23x28 inches, and boiler pressure was 210 p.s.i. Weighing 230,100 pounds, they developed 37,771 pounds of tractive force. By 1950 all had been scrapped.
