A&Y #338

This Class H-3 Consolidation was built as Southern Railway #338 by Alco in Pittsburgh in 1900 (c/n 2180). It kept this number when restencilled for the A&Y.  Listed as valued at $15.4K on 11/19/1937. On 9/8/1945, the A&Y requested to return 338 and 280 for engine 478. The 338 returned to Southern 10/26/1945. 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 locationThis photo was likely 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!
