Baskett Lumber and Manufacturing Company 2-6-0 "Mogul" Locomotives in the USA

Class Details by Steve Llanso of Sweat House Media

Class 1 (Locobase 11096)

Data from Logging Locomotives 1913 (Philadelphia, Pa: Baldwin Locomotive Works, 1913), p 11 and DeGolyer, Volume 41, p. 5. Works number was 37893 in June 1912.

The specs show that the railroad for which this Mogul locomotive was intended wanted the 1 to haul 1,170 short tons on the level, take 550 tons up a 1/2% grade, and 335 tons up a 1% grade. (The ruling grade was said to be 0.8%.)

This locomotive served the BL&MC for about six years, then transferred to WP Brown & Sons Lumber Company in April 1918 when that company bought the Baskett's assets. 1 operated on the Mobile & Gulf (see Locobase 14693 for a history of that railroad.) Its service on the M&G ended abruptly with a wreck in 1930, after which it was scrapped.
