Title: #12
Post by: Dusten Barefoot on July 12, 2007, 02:30:07 PM
I wonder, how many railroads have a locomotive numbered 12? I would like to know the engine, RR, and wheel arrangement.

Tweetsie 12, ET&WNC, Ten-Wheeler

There is no single master RR list that has the roster of every loco of every railroad. You'll get some responses from folk's favorite lines that they know about, but it won't be comprehensive or unabridged by any stretch of the imagination.

When the engines were numbered the fellow doing so didn't know the last number assigned.....soooooo....he said......was it number one (1) or number two (2)......oh  well, let's call it twelve (12) and cover all the bases.

Jersey Central #12 - 0-6-0 camelback                                                  Lehigh Coal & Navigation - 2-8-0 camelback    (went to Lehigh & New England) 
 New York Ontario & Western - 4-4-0 built in 1869/1870
Since you didn't mention steam or diesel -

CNJ 312 - F7A diesel
Reading #12 - SW900  diesel rebuild
and probably many more!!

I am looking for the trains ya'll do know, I am not asking for every steam or diesel locomotive in the country with the number 12, I would just like to see how many trains have the 12 as their number.

Dusten,  as a general rule passenger trains have lower numbers and the lower the number, the more important the train.  So train #12, by and large, would be a middle of the pack to low train. 
Do not confuse trains with locomotives.  First you asked for locomotives numbered 12 and now you are asking for trains.  Which do you really want? 
IIRC, Train #12 on th C&O was a West Virginia eastbound local.

Locomotive #12 , Alder Gulch Shortline, Montana. An oustside frame Baldwin 2-8-0, originally operated in Mexico. Gauge 30 inches. This is the loco Bachmann used as the prototype for the Large Scale and ON30 2-8-0 models. The models do have a few differences however.

To add to Gene's comments - just an FYI - some railroads "numbered" their trains by letters.  For example Conrail had AL-PI - Allentown to Pittsburgh,  PA......Not really an answer to your question, but...
