Russian decapod question

GREG MAXWELL
 

I have another USRA locomotive question. According to Dr. Sylvan Wood, the MK&T was assigned 10 of the Russian decapods: #8000-8002, 8005-8007, 8010, 8016, 8029-30. As far as I can tell, these 8000 series numbers were given to the USA 2-10-0s by the Southern Railway. All of the engines with the exception of #8010 show up in Prince’s Southern locomotive book.  After its brief stay on the Katy, #8010 became SLSF #1623.  Can anyone tell me if Alco-Richmond c/n 58867 became USA #1033 then Southern Ry #8010, or is Wood’s roster in error. 


Another question is what was the disposition of Alco-Richmond c/n 58839. It was USA #1025, then Southern Ry #8002 to MK&T (US)8002 then the trail goes cold. any help?


Thank you in advance,

58867 did become SLSF 1623 eventually but was on Southern and MKT inbetween, but it is doubtful if MKT ever renumbered it. It was USA 1053 when built, then Southern 8010.

Doug,

 

Thank you for the reply. Richard Prince has the following information in his Southern Railway System Locomotives and Boats:

ALCo-R c/n 58837 became USA #1023 to SRy #8000

ALCo-R c/n 58838 became USA #1024 to SRy #8001

ALCo-R c/n 58839 became USA #1025 to SRy #8002

ALCo-R c/n 58842 became USA #1028 to SRy #8005

ALCo-R c/n 58843 became USA #1029 to SRy #8006

ALCo-R c/n 58844 became USA #1030 to SRy #8007

(ALCo-R c/n 58867, 8010?? not listed)

ALCo-R c/n 58873 became USA #1059 to SRy #8016

Baldwin c/n 48420 became USA #1195 to SRy #8029

Baldwin c/n 48466 became USA #1196 to SRy #8030

If Prince’s USA # for Alco c/n 58839 is incorrect are these other numbers wrong as well?

Thanks for the help,

Greg Maxwell
