 This locomotive had the following characteristics:

 This Consolidation was built by Alco in Richmond in 1901 (c/n 3124).  The A&Y 313 was not renumbered when leased from the Southern Railway, although pre-1903  it was #400.  The consolidation was denoted as Class H-1 by the Southern Railway according to Richard E. Prince's Southern Railway book. 

The 313 replaced 297 in the A&Y lease on July 9, 1948 after an accident in Greensboro damaged #297. A note dated December 18, 1948 indicated that: "Engine 313 had Class 5 repairs 8/23/1947 and due for flues 8/2/1949; jacket and lagging 6/23/1949. Flues are not good and it has bad frames. It is in as good condition today as when we [Southern] let the A&Y have it in place of 297." The Southern's Superintendent of Motive Power wrote to Southern's General Manager, Mr. G.W. Adams, to suggest that they let the A&Y have 317 in place of the 313 "as engine 313 has given us considerable trouble because of the condition of the flues." This occurred on January 17, 1949 and thus ended the 313's short service on the A&Y. The 313 was scrapped at Spencer Shops in March, 1949 according to R.E. Prince. Obviously, it had a bad case of "the flue" that ended its life.
