Southern Ms Mikado
Built in October 1911, #4501 became the 1st of (182) Ms Class Mikados built for the Southern Railway. Producing 53,900 lbs of tractive effort, the 4501 was used primarily as a freight hauler. She was sold in 1948 to the Kentucky & Tennessee Railway and renumber to #12. When the K&T dieselized in 1963, #12 was retired and was sold to a local rail fan named Paul Merriman for $5000. #4501 was operated to Chattanooga to be overhauled into an excursion locomotive. Wearing the Southern Crescent Passenger Green paint scheme, #4501 operated as the main star of the new Southern Steam Program until being replaced by larger power in 1984. She ran again from the late 1980s until the 1990s. In 2014, #4501 was completely overhauled and became the first locomotive to operate in NS’ 21st Century Steam Program.
Today: #4501 is the only surviving Ms Mikado to exist:
#4501 is operated by the Tennessee Valley Railroad in Chattanooga, TN
