A&Y #338

 This locomotive had the following characteristics: 

Construction year 1900
Construction number c/n 2180
Constructed by Pittsburgh Locomotive and Car Works
Southern Class H-3
Cylinder size (inches) 21"x28"
Steam pressure (pouind per square inch) 200 lbs
Driver size (diameter) 60"
Weight (in pounds) 152,800 lbs
Tractive effort (in pounds) 34,986 lbs

This Class H-3 Consolidation was built as Southern Railway #425 by Alco in Pittsburgh in 1900 (c/n 2180). In the 1903 renumbering it became Southern 338, and it kept this number when restencilled for the A&Y.  Listed as valued at $15.4K on 11/19/1937. On September 8, 1945, the A&Y requested to return 338 and 280 for engine 478. The 338 was returned to the Southern on October 26, 1945. The Southern had no plan to use 338 so it was stored at either Spencer or Greensboro until scrapped in September of 1947.

A&Y 2-8-0 #338 at unknown location

This photo likely was taken at Greensboro, since a lot of A&Y locomotive photos were taken there and it's one place on the A&Y that might sport that many parallel tracks. What a dapper little engine!

ayad338.jpg (133663 bytes) This "steamy" photo of the 338 was taken at Greensboro in June of 1944. I wonder if the unknown photographer was aware of the Normandy invasion on D-Day that month? Howard Davis made the print that was in Bud Law's collection.
