Atlantic & Yadkin Railway

History &
Modeling


    

A&Y #187

 This locomotive had the following characteristics: 

Construction year 1895
Construction number c/n 2501
Constructed by Alco Locomotive Works (Richmond, VA)
Southern Class G-2
Cylinder size (inches) 20"x26"
Steam pressure (pouind per square inch) 150 lbs
Driver size (diameter) 50"
Weight (in pounds) 140,100 lbs
Tractive effort (in pounds) 31,532 lbs

The Class G-2 locomotive was the first of the 2-8-0 type built new for the Southern Railway in 1895-1896. This locomotive originally was assigned road number 223, but was reassigned to 187 in 1903. I have no information when 187 was first leased or rented to the Atlantic & Yadkin. The only evidence, besides the photo, that the 187 was leased by the A&Y was a note in the correspondence that 348 replaced 187 in the lease agreement beginning on August 1, 1936. The 187 was eventually scrapped at Spencer April 29, 1937 according to R.E. Prince's roster information.

This photo of A&Y 187 in Greensboro on an unknown date comes from Mac Connery collection. I noted in an eBay search that the print was also in the collection of Robert Graham of Stillwater, MN held by Myron Gilbertson until 2012, and eventually sold on eBay in 2018 to an unknown party. I bid on the photo thinking I did not have a copy, lost the auction, and then realized I had a copy that I had not yet scanned and put on the web!  Sorry for the guy who won the auction, as I was willing to pay a hefty sum when I thought I did not have a copy.
