    Ex D&RG(W) Narrow Gauge 2-8-2 K-27 #459.

    To Nat'l RailwaysofMexico 400, 1941 Standard gauged, renumbered NdeM 2250 Scrapped 1960s See Note 1

    Note
    1 Many sources list 458 as becoming NdeM 400 and 2250. However, 2250 has outward-sloping valves like 459, not an inward-sloping cylinder casting like 458. Thus, either conventional roster wisdom is wrong, or the Mexicans did a whole lot more work in the conversion process than anybody knew. If anybody has a picture of 401/2251 in service, I'd appreciate seeing it to verify this conclusion.
