Class Details by Steve Llanso of Sweat House Media

Class Mala (Locobase 14527)

Data from Baldwin Locomotive Works Specification for Engines as digitized by the DeGolyer Library of Southern Methodist University Vol 54, p 410. See also "Pioneer Mill Company: A Maui Sugar Plantation Legacy" presented at http://www.oralhistory.hawaii.edu/pages/community/pioneer.html and the Hawaiian Sugar Planters' Association Plantation Archive entry for http://www2.hawaii.edu/~speccoll/p_pioneer.html . Works number was 41756 in October 1914.

Pioneer Mill was located on the west side of the island of Maui and began production at the surprisingly early date of 1864. Eventually the mill harvested an area that was 10 miles (16 km) long and 1/2 mile wide (0.8 km) at elevations between 10 feet (3.05 metres) and 700 feet (213 metres).


Class Waliikuli (Locobase 12451)

Data from Baldwin Locomotive Works Specification for Engines as digitized by the DeGolyer Library of Southern Methodist University Volume 20, p. 124 and Volume 23, p 146. Works number was 18458 in December 1900.
