LEHIGH VALLEY COMPOUND LOCOMOTIVE
 
Locomotive Engineering, March 1892
 
*  LV 2-8-0c #310 page 73
* A LV camelback with a belpair top,  wooten firebox. The PRR used this type firebox in there E1 class. There first 4-4-2 types, and first and only 3 camelbacks.
edit 4-1-2014
 
Locomotive #310,  Lehigh Valley Railroad.  
* This article reads as though it is a brand spanking new locomotive. In truth it is a rebuild. In truth again the way Lehigh Valley rebuilt their locomotives you may as well consider them to be new.  The first Lehigh valley locomotive number 310 was from a time way back when you named your locomotives.
*  It was built by Baldwin and delivered to the LV in November of 1876. It has a wonderful name " The United States". It was Baldwin construction number 3862. It was the last built of 16 made by Baldwin for the Lehigh Valley. It is listed not as a M class but a early 2-8-0. The work life of this locomotive the United States #310 wasn't allowed to start yet. Baldwin had plains for it. It went to Philadelphia for the exposition there, and was on display in the Baldwin exhibit. It started out its life in a place of honor. There is a photo I cant post because it  is a part of the H. L. Broadbelt collection. It is a beauty.  
* It had to live its work life well to be considered for the rebuild planed for it by Mr. Frederick Roth. Master Mechanic of the Wilks Barre shops of the LVRR. The locomotive was to be a one of a kind. It was to be of a cross compound type designed by Mr. F.W. Dean., and built by Alexander Mitchell. Being a test locomotive Mr. Roth didn't stop and just a cross compound design but think out of box added a few neat little new inventions for the time. A interceptor valve ( heat exchanger) of a new style installed in the smoke box and the use of a Belpaire type firebox with a wide grate for burning hard coal, were other additions. Because Mr Roth wanted this locomotive to be a success this was one well built machine. This is my reason to say that #310 came out of the Wilks Barre  Shops as a new locomotive.  
* It can out as a M-18 class locomotive. The only one of its class.
