The #188 was built by Henry Tyson in the B&O shops at Mount Claire. It is an exact copy of the typical Mason 4-4-0's of the 1857 period. 16x22 inch cylinders, 60-inch drivers, and an estimated weight (no data on #188's weights survive), of 24 long tons. It was placed on the road in November of 1858. A more complete history of it's war time exploits is given in the library file download. It had a very long career on the B&O after the war, too.

During the 1877 Railroad workers' Strike.
