More and more recently I have seen the term "Mollie" used to describe N & W's Class M steam locomotives. Although I once worked in an N & W shop that had a Class M, I never heard the term "Mollie" until recently, but I have to admit that most rank and file N & W railroaders would refer to a locomotive by the number series instead of the class, e.g., a "four-hundred" instead of a "Class M."

Still, I wonder, is "Mollie" a recent railfan invention. Anyone know?
