Bingham & Garfield 100-106, built by Alco in 1911 to 1918, were almost identical to Erie Railroad's three camel-back 0-8-8-0 locomotives built for Erie by Alco in 1907, numbered as Erie 2600-2602. The major difference being that the Erie engines were saturated steam, and the B&G engines were superheated steam. The B&G engines also had standard cabs at the rear of their firebox.
The three Erie engines were the first of 41 "standard" 0-8-8-0 built for eight different railroads by Alco-Schenentady and Alco-Brooks between 1907 and 1922.
All had 26/41x28 cylinders and 51 inch drivers. All had similar boilers and 23 had wide fireboxes with 100 square feet of grate area, with boiler pressure of 210-220 pounds. All had tractive effort in the range of 100,000 pounds (+/- 10,000 pounds).

The B&G engines were later rebuilt with normal-width fireboxes, matching the NYC and B&M engines. The Erie engines were later rebuilt by Baldwin as 2-8-8-2's. The B&G engnes were reportedly built using the same plans as the D&H engines.
