The Western Maryland, primarily a coal-hauling railroad during its heyday, derived 50% of its revenue from the transportation of bituminous coal. In fact, the 21 mile route was filled with 1.75 percent grades and sharp 8 degree curves. Known as the 1200 Series, a total of 12 locomotives were built, each sporting a 22,000 gallon tender that held 30 tons of coal. According to Eddystone, one M-2 could haul an 11,000 ton train up the 1.75% grades though most runs were complemented with other locomotives, including 4-8-4 Northerns and 2-10-0 Decapods.
