Class Details by Steve Llanso of Sweat House Media

Class 6 (Locobase 13196)

Data from Baldwin Locomotive Works Specification for Engines as digitized by the DeGolyer Library of Southern Methodist University Volume 31, p 64. See also the Mississippi Rails entry at [], last accessed on 24 September 2011. Works number was 32086 in October 1907.

One of many logging roads in Mississippi, Ingram Day opened its line in 1906 to serve the Lyman, Miss sawmill. By 1909, Ingram Day had laid 16 miles of 45-lb/yard (22.5 kg/metre) rail. Ingram Day bought the Yarborough Paper Company in Yarbo, Ala in April 1918. At that point, this Mogul was transferred to Yarbo.

In May 1924, Ingram Day assets in Lyman were sold to Batson & Hatten Lumber Company.
