This odd class designation came in the 1920s, when B&O rebuilt its Class A-3 Atlantics built by Baldwin in 1910. They were given super-heaters and smaller, 74" diameter drivers. This enabled them to better handle new, all steel and much heavier passenger cars.
This model was built from an All Nation kit in the 1970s, modeling the prototype look of the late 1930s.
It has a synchronized sound system and a constant brightness headlight.

Thanks for the compliment on my O&W photo, Balto&NY
Like you I am a Baltimore & Ohio fan. I grew up 2 blocks away from B&Os Ex BR&P Lincoln Park Engine servicing. I also have a warm spot for all coal haulers especially anthracite roads.
Apparently You and I are the only regular entrants it these photo polls. I wish more people would join in. A lot can be learned from other peoples modeling.
