East Carolina Lumber Company 2-6-0 "Mogul" Locomotives in the USA

Class Details by Steve Llanso of Sweat House Media

Class 1 (Locobase 11086)

Data from Logging Locomotives 1913 (Philadelphia, Pa: Baldwin Locomotive Works, 1913), p 10. See also DeGolyer, Vol 43, pp. 243+. Works numbers were 39268-39269 in February 1913.

The ECLC was based in New Bern, NC and laid 12 miles of 20 lb/yard (10 kg/metre) rails to reach the timber it was logging. In 1913, the company owned about 30,000 acres of principally short leaf pine in Craven, Beaufort, and Pamlico Counties. Its mills had an annual capacity of 20 million feet of timber.

#1 served the ECLC until 1920, when it was sold to locomotive rebuilder Southern Iron & Equipment. After having its lead truck removed, converting it to an 0-6-0 switcher, the engine was sold to Sour Lake Lumber Company in Sour Lake, Texas as their #1.

#2 went to a different rebuilder - Georgia Car & Locomotive -- which sold it to the R L McLeod & Son Lumber Company in Ravenel, SC.
