This consolidation was built in 1901 by Alco at the Richmond works for the Southern Railway. The H-1 Class locomotive served the Southern until July 9, 1948 when it substituted in the A&Y - Southern Railway lease agreement for A&Y 313 which had bad flues and frames and was due for major repairs. The 317 served the A&Y for a few months before being retired in March, 1949. It may have been sent to the High Point, Randleman, and Ashboro Railway before being scrapped in February of 1952.
