DSP&P Cooke 2-6-0 Mogul Locomotives

The Danforth & Cooke Locomotive Works, located in Paterson NJ, began operations in 1852. In spite of the 20-year head start that Rogers had, Danforth & Cooke grew very quickly. Orders for its locomotives were on the rise through the Civil War and into the 1880s. The Danforth & Cooke plant continued to operate even after it was merged into the American Locomotive Company in 1901, along with Rogers and 6 others , Under the control of Alco, it mainly built rotary snow plows or specialty engines for foreign companies. Danforth & Cooke's Paterson plant turned out its last locomotive in 1926 -- more than 3000 steam locomotives in all.

This page covers the 8 DSP&P 2-6-0 Mogul locomotives acquired from Cooke. DSP&P also owned nine 2-8-0 Consolidations from Cooke.

HISTORY
In 1884, DSP&P purchased eight 2-6-0 Moguls from Cooke Locomotive Works. They were numbered 39, 40, and 69 through 74. These became #109 through 116 in 1885 and became C&S #4 through 11 in 1899. These locomotives augmented the nine Brooks 2-6-0's acquired in 1882.

DSP&P #74 was the last locomotive purchased by DSP&P. The gap in the number series was caused two orders for 2-8-0 Consolidations from Cooke and Baldwin.

The Cooke Moguls had 40" drivers and 14.5x18" cylinders, so were a little snappier on the flat than the Brooks models with 38" drivers.


C&S #9 (ex DSP&P #72) went to the 1939 World's fair with a combine and a coach and ended up at a tourist railway.
