AB&C/ACL AS-3 Mastodon
#485 was a Class M 4-8-0 Mastodon, built by Baldwin for the Norfolk & Western Railway in 1906. Saddled on (8) 56″ drivers, #485 produced 40,163 lbs of tractive effort. She was sold briefly to the High Point, Thomasville & Denton Railroad, before being sold again. This time to the Atlanta, Birmingham & Coast Railroad. Renumbered to #34, she was reclassified as an AS-3. Her spoked pilot wheels were swapped for solid wheels, her pilot was changed out with 2 foot boards, the round number plate became a small rectangular plate, her cab had numerous windows removed, the compressor was raised up along the running board, and her tender was swapped out for a shorter tender. In 1946, the AB&C was merged into the Atlantic Coast Line, and #34 became #7034. She also received white striping on her running boards and white pilot and tender foot boards.
#7034 was scrapped in the mid 50’s after the railroad completely dieselized.
