Thanks for the history lesson and the links. Very nice picture of WSS Mikado #300.

They eventially attained an N&W look with N&W tenders and pilots. The two bought from ACL were 827 in 1950 and 834 in 1952. They got ex-N&W tenders, but I think they kept their ACL pilots. Two N&W W-2's, 711 and 714 worked on WSS until the end of steam in 1957. At some point 711 had an ex-ACL tender. When N&W started to replace steam with diesel, WSS did the same.
