Brooks-Scanlon Lumber Company's K & E had a standard-gauge section that included 3 miles of trackage rights over the B-S and 23 miles more built in 1906 from Bolivar Junction to Foley on 56 lb/yard (28 kg/metre) rail on a level profile.
This Mogul had a varied career after the K & E pulled up its tracks in 1922. It went off to Philip A Ryan Lumber as their #3. Ryan operated the 3 for more than a decade before selling it to locomotive rebuilder/reseller Birmingham Rail & Locomotive Co. The BR&L found a buyer in the Alabama Central in September 1936, but the AC sold the 3 to Lufkin Land & Lumber Company of Lufkin, Tex as their 2.
Finally, the LLLC sold the 2 to the Reader Railroad tourist line of Reader, Ark
The K & E had a 17-mile (27 km) standard-gauge road owned by the Brooks-Scanlon Lumber Company that served two mills in Kentwood, Louisiana The narrow-gauge portion, which was headed at Bolivar Junction, ran "uphill and down dale" (according to TapLines) about 25 miles eastward to Hackley.
The Mogul was delivered with a straight stack but soon refitted with a broad, funnel-shaped, spark-arresting stack.
After 5 years on the K & E, the 28 moved on to the Eastern Tennessee & Western North Carolina in September 1918. In December 1919, the 28 transferred from the Tweetsie to the Linville River, on which it operated until it was scrapped in February 1940.
