Between 1943 and 1947 the Wabash's Decatur Shops rebuilt seven Mikados into semi-streamlined 4-6-4s to handle its premier varnish. The first five, including No. 700 shown here, were rebuilt using boilers from the unsuccessful three-cylinder K-5 class 2-8-2s which had been stored out of service; No. 700 presumably took the boiler of 2-8-2 No. 2600. As rebuilt these Hudsons had 80-inch drivers, cylinder dimensions of 26x28 inches, and a boiler pressure of 220 p.s.i.; for other dimensions consult the commentary for No. 702 following.
