Atlantic & Yadkin Railway

History &


A&Y #449

This was a class J Consolidation built in Pittsburgh (s/n 26201) in 1903 for the Southern Railway. The number was kept when it was leased by the A&Y. The lease started in January,1938 as replacement for #310. Delivered to A&Y 2/12/1938. The 449 saw service until the last year of the A&Y's existence and was retired in June, 1950.

AY449_Sanford_1938_BowieJames Bowie of New York  photographed the 449 in Sanford in August, 1938, but differs with Richard E. Prince on the class of this locomotive.  I will have to examine the details more thoroughly, and perhaps consult with an SRHA expert on steam before I say definitively which class #449 was.

Note the A&Y lettered caboose. I thought I had a new cab photo, but when I enlarged the photo I was pretty certain that was 862 again (see the photo of 862 in a less pristine condition in the cab section of this website).
