C+O Baldwin F11 Ten-Wheeler No. 377 by rlkitterman C+O Baldwin F11 Ten-Wheeler No. 377 by rlkitterman
A fine turn-of-the-century locomotive, if we could clean it up and get a better view of it, is Chesapeake and Ohio Railway (C&O) F11 Ten-Wheeler (4-6-0) No. 377, which was built by Baldwin in 1902 for the Cincinnati, Richmond, and Muncie Railroad.  That railroad was merged into the Chicago, Cincinnati, and Louisville Railroad, which was in turn bought by the C&O after its 1909 bankruptcy.  No. 377 worked on the James River Line and Craig Valley Branch until it was retired in 1952 and donated to Logan, West Virginia, from which it was transferred to the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad Museum in 1971.  It is now parked in the North Car Shop near a much larger and more famous C&O engine, the 600-ton H8 "Allegheny" articulated locomotive.  I would like to see No. 377 pulling an excursion train of some turn-of-the-century wooden coaches, or a demonstration freight train, but that does not look like a possibility.  At the very least, I would like more people to see No. 377 and remember the C&O had much more diverse rolling stock and traffic than its modern successor CSX.
