The book describes and illustrates the
original late Mohawk design, and the
evolution of the basic design that resulted
in the L-4 Mohawk, perhaps the best dual
service two-cylinder steam locomotive
design ever developed. Included is a
separate section on late Mohawk tenders,
one of the secrets of the Mohawk’s success.
Oddities are identified, and the final days
of late Mohawk operation are also fully
documented, including last runs. The late
Mohawk design is compared with
contemporary steam designs used by other
railroads in the Central’s service area.
