The Machine History

Twenty types of Cooke 2-8-0 consolidations were delivered to DSP&P between June and November 1883. The first nine were numbered to fill the gap created when the older Baldwin 2-8-0 were numbered DSP&P 50 to 57 in 1880. The other eleven Cooke 2-8-0s were then numbered from DSP&P 58 to 68. They became a continuous group from #198 to 217 in the 1885 renumbering scheme and later C&S 37 to 56 in 1899. They had 36" motor-drivers and 15x18" cylinders. Most were scrapped or sold to lumber companies during the first 20 years of the C&S era.
