The Wabash Railroad operated Northern (4-8-4) and Mountain (4-8-2) types in freight service on its main lines in the United States, but its heaviest freight engines in Canada were of the Mikado (2-8-2) type. I recall seeing one of them stored in the yards at Windsor, Ontario, destined for the scrappers, when my father and I rode across the river from Detroit in a coach on the Canadian National ferry in 1953 or 1954. Here, in a view that came from Tom Rock of Rock on Trains, we see Wabash 2-8-2 No. 2458 in CNR's Windsor yards at an unknown date. These "Mikes" of class K-1 were 1912 products of a combination of U.S. builders. They had 25½x30-inch cylinders and 64-inch drivers, and sustained a boiler pressure of 210 p.s.i. Their grate area totaled 63 square feet, and they had 3310 square feet of evaporative heating surface and 740 square feet of superheater surface. Weighing in at 242,000 pounds, they developed a tractive effort of 54,408 pounds. The photographer's name is unspecified.
