* Acquired by the Baltimore & Ohio Railroad in January, 1890. Tractive effort is for engines in class H-6 with 62" drivers.
The above engines were rented from the Baltimore & Ohio Railroad during the latter part of 1900 when the Baltimore & Lehigh's new engines were found to be too heavy to operate over the old narrow gauge roadbed and trestles. They were returned to the B&O in November of 1901 when the M&PA's new engines arrived from Richmond.

This engine was built for the Maryland & Pennsylvania Railroad, but was never operated by the M&PA. It was delivered directly to the Chicago & Illinois Western Railroad where it was numbered 201.

This engine operated in regular service over the Maryland & Pennsylvania Railroad from February of 1950 to September of 1951 on loan from the US Army, who wanted the Franklin poppet valves tested. Operation of the locomotive was satisfactory and the poppet valves were particularly well liked.
The Delta Herald reported that on March 27, 1901, B&O engine No. 433 (Class E-2, 2-8-0) ran into York with a group of officials on inspection. It was the first time that a B&O engine had entered York.
The Delta Herald also reported on September 12, 1900 that B&O engine 733 was being used on Baltimore & Lehigh trains. George Stewart, former engineer on 733, saw his old engine in Delta. Mr. Stewart and the engine were captured by the Confederate Army at Martinsburg during the Civil War. (No. 733, formerly No. 601, was B&O Class H-1 built in Nov. 1880. The B&O had no engines numbered in the 700s during the War.)
