C&O Steam Locomotive Tender Capacities and Assignments
This pamphlet reprints two C&O rosters that show the numbers, capacity, etc., of steam locomotive tenders and the individual locomotives to which they were assigned, by type. (See DS-09-299
for assignments by individual tender serial number over time.) These rosters, from 1936 and 1940, show tender assignments, classification, and capacities by locomotive class, type and number. Added to these official C&O rosters are copies from C&O mechanical diagram books that show a variety of tender types as applied to locomotives. This is not a compreshensive but rather a sampling of tender drawings. (For a more comprehensive set of locomotive diagrams, see DS-7-023
.) Another appendix to this pamphlet is an article on tender classification and assignment which first appeared in the June 1975 issue of Chesapeake & Ohio Historical Newsletter.
