2-6-2 Prairie Steam Locomotives

2-6-2 Prairie

The 2-6-2 Prairie steam locomotives were developed in the late 1800's in response to the need for more power than was being provided by the then-dominant 4-4-0 American steamers.  Never a terribly popular locomotive, it was soon supplanted by larger and more powerful locomotives.
