No, it is a fixed 4-8-4 configuration.

The old UP Challenger (4-6-6-4) and UP Big Boy (4-8-8-4) were the articulated engines.

C'mon over to Virginia. They run a couple of steam excursions a year- including one with a CSX "Greenbriar" class locomotive. THAT old girl can MOVE!

CSX "Greenbriar" class locomotive?

Are you referring to the Shay Class of Steam Locomotives?



For I thought that the Greenbriar Equity built diesel-electric locomotives after buying a company that use to be owned by General Motors.

The reason that I am asking is the Cass Scenic Railroad operates Shay locomotives that was used to haul logs in and around Cass, WV back in the early 1920's here in WV. They still offer rides up a mountain at the park in Cass during the Summer and early Fall.

They have a steam train trip or two every fall that travels from Huntington to Hinton along the New river Gorge. I have never saw it, so I do not know what type or class of steam engine they use.

Those were the old "SCREW DRIVE" jobs. All gear driven, they could haul logs up q 15%grade, and not slip. Made logging and Coal possable in a lot of mountainus reigons.
