Ashley, Drew & Northern 2-6-0 "Mogul" Locomotives in the USA


Class Details by Steve Llanso of Sweat House Media

Class 110 (Locobase 14990)

Data from Roy V Wright (Ed.) 1922 Locomotive Cyclopedia of American Practice, Sixth Edition (New York: Simmons-Boardman Publishing Company, 1922), p. 122. Works number was 6125 in August 1920.

The AD&N linked Crossett, Ark with Monticello with 40.65 miles (65.4 km) of main line. It was the successor to the Crossett, Monticello & Northern, which begun construction in 1912 as the Crossett Railway. It was leased by the Arkansas, Louisiana & Gulf in 1914, an agreement that was taken over by the Arkansas & Louisiana Midland in November 1915. At that time, there was talk of extending the line north to Pine Bluff, but that project never took hold.

After the A&LM went bankrupt in 1920, the lease was cancelled, the AD&N resumed operation on its own property on 1 March 1920. Still owned by the Crossett Lumber Company, the shortline continued to operate independently until Crossett was taken over by Georgia Pacific in 1963.
