By 1917, the arrival of larger and much heavier freight cars had pushed
most 0-6-0 designs to their limits. Realizing that railroads needed bigger
and more powerful switchers to handle these modern cars, the United States
Railway Administration developed plans for an all-new 0-8-0.
Up-to-date in all respects, these big switchers were the equals in power of
many road freight locomotives from just a few years earlier! Unlike some
USRA designs, the 0-8-0 was well liked by the railroads that received it;
175 were completed before government control ended in 1920.
But the 0-8-0's ultimate success came in the years that followed as the
USRA design was eventually copied by 35 different roads. In fact, the last
new steam locos built in the US were a series of 0-8-0s, constructed by the
N&W in 1951-53 that followed the general outline of the decades-old USRA
