ANDERSON For twenty years the Chesapeake Class, H-7, 2-8-8-2 mallet locomotives, pulled coal loads successfully over Alleghany Mountain enroute to the eastern seaboard. In the early 1940's, Motive Power officials recognized the need to replace their H-7's, not only because of their age but also because of the need for larger and more powerful locomotives. After consideration of several different engines, motive power experts settled on the Allegheny Class, H-8, 2-6-6-6 locomotive, the largest and most powerful in the world. C. & O. officials named the new engine 'Allegheny" in honor of the Alleghany Mountain the engines were built to conquer The use of the letter, "e" instead of"a," in Alleghany was caused by the more popular spelling of the word in the north where the engines were manufactured, and C. & O. offices were located in Cleveland, Ohio The builders of the new engine was the Lima Locomotive Works who delivered engine number 1600 to the C. & O. on December 10, 1945, the first of sixty that were purchased engineer during early days of steam, because of wrecks, explosions, etc was only 11 1/2 years. It makes one wonder why anyone would take a job with this reputation. I think you would find the answer if you ever rode on a steam engine and was knowledgeable about railroading. I suspect that 100 percent of the engineers liked their job and gave very little thought to the danger they were in constantly. Like the Captain of a ship, they were prepared to stay with their engine to the end but the desire to live caused many to lose their life by jumping offin the face of danger. One such engineer to lose his life in an engine explosion was the likeable Wilbur H. Anderson who was killed at "CW" Cabin, the west end of Hinton yard, when engine 1642 blew up June 9, 1953. Many were the times during the 1940's I rode home from Quinnimont or Thurmond on the seat box behind Mr. Anderson pulling one of his coal trains. He was a jovial man, always accommodating and nice to me, willing to wait a few minutes until my relief came so I could get home. The following report of the engine the worst I have ever seen." explosion was made by Mr. John E.
