Description

This little chuffer covering the Jackson coach yard job is a member of a family of six-wheeled switchers on the Central which in 1940 included seven classes and forty six subclasses. The 6940 represents class B-11g, built, surprisingly enough in view of NYC's strong preference for Alco, by Baldwin in 1913. Despite the variety of designations, most of the six-wheelers were alike in several principal specifications -- e.g., 21x28-inch cylinders, 58-inch drivers, 180-pound pressure, and a tractive effort of 32,570 pounds.
