100th birthday celebration for Wilmington & Western Railroad's Engine 98 steam locomotive. 5/17/2009

The first steam locomotive with a 4-4-0 wheel arrangement was built in 1837 and the design lasted for nearly a century. The 4-4-0 was a popular choice for nearly every American railroad, so much so that the wheel arrangement soon earned the name "American Standard," or simply "American."

No. 98 was built by the American Locomotive Company of Schenectady, New York, in January 1909 (construction #45921) for the Mississippi Central Railroad (MSC) in Hattiesburg, Mississippi.
