Commissioned in 1917 by order of President Woodrow
Wilson, the United States Railroad Administration (USRA)
was charged to organize the efforts of America ‘s railroads
as they provided needed supplies for the war. After World
War I, the goals of the USRAwere shifted to the fo llowing
commerce-related endeavors: standardize design for speed
of construction, standardize components, reduce part
shortages and cut railroad costs. Embracing this concept,
the Chesapeake & Ohio and Wheeling & Lake Erie Railroads
ordered the USRA 2-6-6-2 Mallet.
The first Mallet was delivered to the W&LE in 1919 for the
grand price of $71 ,966.94. Later, Nickel Plate leased
Mallets from the W&LE and renumbered them for use on the
NPR rails.
