Equipment Information

Graysonia Nashville & Ashdown 26 is a small freight engine built for branch line use on the GN&A, a short line in Arkansas. This wheel arrangement was among the earliest used for freight engines, with the first 2-6-0s built around the time of the Civil War. By World War I, large railroads were mostly eschewing Moguls in favor of larger engines but the type remained moderately popular with smaller short line railroads.
