An order of (5) F-19 4-6-2 pacifics were constructed by Alco in 1926 for the Chesapeake & Ohio. Shortly after the end of WWII, the C&O decided to upgrade their passenger service. The C&O was primarily a coal-hauler and therefore wanted to improve steam locomotive technology. They developed a new luxury liner between Washington and Cincinnati named the “Chessie.” The new liner was to be powered by experimental steam-turbine-electric locomotives. In addition, the C&O’s Huntington shops rebuilt the F-19 4-6-2’s into 4-6-4 L1 Hudsons. The new locomotives had roller bearings, front-end throttle, high-speed booster, cross counterbalance, and Franklin Type A Poppet Valves.

A 210psi boiler pressure, (6) 74″ drivers and 49200 lbs of tractive effort made the L1 Hudsons a very worthy locomotive for the Chessie lash up.

Due to the increased automobile production and the airline expansion that occurred after the war, the luxury Chessie passenger trains never ran. The train was essentially cancelled and many of the cars were sold off before being delivered. The rebuilt “Hudsons” instead hauled regular passenger trains until 1953.

#490 was stored in the Huntington Roundhouse until 1968 when it was moved to the Baltimore & Ohio Railroad Museum. She is the sole surviving C&O L1 Streamlined Hudson.
