Our Quick Pic Book series shows the subjects in extensive black & white photographs which have often been digitally edited to best exhibit the details.
These locomotives originally were built as the standard gauge C-41 class 2-8-0 locomotives. Ten were chosen in no particular order from the excess locos
and were rebuilt into narrow gauge 2-8-2 Mikado's by the D&RGW's own shop.
They had the most tractive effort of the locomotives on the D&RGW but that extra power came at a price. They were too heavy for many of the branches and were restricted to mostly the mainline narrow gauge trackage. Eight of the ten survived the scrappers but as of this date none are operating on the C&TS railroad.
