The Western Pacific never took delivery of 4-8-2s from a builder but acquired ten of the Florida East Coast's surplus engines in 1936, assigning them to class MTP-44. These ex-FEC locomotives had 3857 square feet of evaporative heating surface and 998 square feet of superheater surface, and a grate area totaling almost 67 square feet. For other specifications see the commentary for Cotton Belt (SLSW) No. 677, another former member of the FEC's 401 class of Mountains. The WP retired its 4-8-2s earlier than many of its other steam locomotives, and these ex-FEC engines no longer appear in a roster published circa 1952. The WP's No. 172, the former FEC 404, appears in this photo purchased from an eBay seller for which no details regarding date, location, or photographer are available.
