Santa Fe[edit]

To whom it may concern:

You may wish to refer to "Iron Horses of the Santa Fe Trail" by E. D. Worley, c. 1965 by the Southwest Railroad Historical Society, pages 202-231. This provides a brief history of this type as developed and used by the A. T. & S. F.

Your text above is contradicted by Worley and the A. T. & S. F. drawings included in the book. According to this account, the type was first produced in 1903 for the A. T. & S. F. by the Baldwin Locomotive Works in Philadelphia, Pa. Subsequent examples of this wheel arrangement were procured from Baldwin by the A. T. & S. F. until 1927, for a total of 342 of the type on the A. T. & S. F. One early example of the type was donated by the A. T. & S. F. to the city of Bartlesville, Oklahoma and currently may be seen in Johnstone Park.

I hope you find the reference information above useful.

Changed some text with added citations[edit]

I've deleted the unreference comment that 2-10-2 evolved from 2-8-2 and inserted Swengel's references that the class evolved from 2-10-0 and other pieces of info. Hope this makes for a more accurate version.
