Nine Locomotives Ordered
The Virginian Railway has placed an order for nine locomotives of the Mikado type, which will be built by the American Locomotive Company. This order is in addition to an order placed for five Mallet engines.
[H. Reid's book shows ten Class MC Mikado locomotives (462-471) built Apr. 1912 and eight more (472-479) built Dec. 1912 by Baldwin. Also, the book shows six Class AD Mallet locomotives (601-606), four built June 1912 and 2 built Jan. 1913.]
