Sorry, Richard, but the Rutland also owned the last 4-8-2's ever produced in
the United States. Admittedly, not the Western behemoths you cite, but more
than a trifle better than a Mikado.

Dick, those cute little Rutland "Mountains" (hee hee!) would have made
a light between-meals snack for a Great Northern O-8 Mike... :-)
