Prototype history

Starting in 1946, the Chesapeake & Ohio took five of its Class F-19
Pacific 4-6-2 locomotives and converted them into Class L-1 Hudsons.
This rework was done in its Huntington Shops and was completed in
1947. All but one of the new L-1s were covered with a streamlined
stainless steel cowl which was painted yellow and silver. The tenders
were cased in fluted stainless steel and tapered at the top so they
would blend exactly with the new Budd passenger cars. The "yellow
bellies" as they were called by C&O crews were numbered 490 through
494 (number 494 did not have a cowl applied). Only 490 survives today
and is on display at the B&O Railroad Museumin Baltimore, MD.


In 1948, five more Hudsons were ordered from Baldwin and numbered
310 through 314. These were designated as class L-2-A. As it turned out,
these were the last passenger steam locomotives built by Baldwin. They
were also the heaviest hudsons ever built.
