I have remembered reading some posts in the past about how a N&W M3 steam locomotive was proposed. I've read conflicting comments on if this proposed locomotive was meant to be a 4-8-0 Mastadon like the locomotives before it, or if it was proposed as a 2-10-0 decapod.

Does any one have any information on this?
