Prior to World War One, the Russian Imperial Government ordered over (1200) 2-10-0 decapod steam locomotives from Alco and Baldwin. But the Russian Revolution forced the cancellation of the order in 1917, leaving 200 of these decapods undelivered. In 1918, these engines were rebuilt for US service and turned over to the United States Railroad Administration (USRA) who assigned them to various railroads. Many of these Russian Decapods began to find homes with smaller railroads. Their combination of light weight and good pulling power made them an idea freight engine for lines with branch lines and lighter rails. The Erie Railroad acquired one of the largest orders of the surplus engines….(75) of them to be exact. They were classified as J-2’s. These engines saw service from 1919 until 1950. In the early 1940s, (16) of the Erie’s J-2 were leased to the New York, Susquehanna & Western, with (11) of them ultimately being purchased between 1942 and 1943.

Unfortunately, none of the (75) decapods used on the Erie and NYS&W were salvaged.
