Engine S0A, one of the pair that
the C, R. I. & P. shops here have
been changing over to meet the re
quirements" of the fast mail run, is
out of the shop. It went west on a
freight on the main line yesterday,
in the limbering-up process. It has
been fitted with a tank that will carry
a good deal more water and coal, so
that probably two stops for water
can be cut out, and it is something
like 12 or 15 tons lighter than the
big Wilson engines that have been
making this fun. The latter are
able to do this work with perfect
ease, but it is a good deal like killing
flies with a club to hitch two cars to
one of these leviathans, for which a
dozen cars are only a fair load, says
an exchange, and their immense
weight makes them very hard on
track when they arc under a speed
of 50 to f5 miles an hour and better.
The lighter engines will make the
run with perfect ease and use less
coal and do less harm to the road.
