Stauffer's New York Central Power vol 2 has several photographs of NYC articulated locomotives hauling coal trains and the like.

Incorrect - The B&A had in total of fourteen 2-6-6-2 Mallets built
between 1910 and 1916 by Alco. One was transferred to the NYC&HR in 1911
while the others were retired by the B&A in 1930-1932 after the Berks

The NYC had one 0-6-6-0 built in 1913 & retired in 1932.

The NYC also had sixty 2-6-6-2's (plus the ex-B&A one) built by Alco in
four orders between 1911 and 1921. Sixteen survived WW II with the last
retired in November 1952.

They also owned nine 0-8-8-0's used for hump service. these were built
by Alco in two orders 1915 & 1921 of which eight survived WW II barely -
all eight retired in May 1947.
