Manchester Saw Mills 2-6-0 "Mogul" Locomotives in the USA

Class Details by Steve Llanso of Sweat House Media

Class 5 (Locobase 14128)

Data from Baldwin Locomotive Works Specification for Engines as digitized by the DeGolyer Library of Southern Methodist University, Volume 43, p. 241. Works number was 39162 in February 1913.

At the same time that Manchester Saw Mills bought the logging Prairie (#4) described in Locobase 14127, it bought this slightly larger Mogul.

Like the 4, the 5 was sold by MSM when it quit logging in the northern Alabama forests in October 1926 to locomotive rebuilder/reseller Birmingham Rail & Locomotive. BR&L immediately sold the engine to McRae Lumber and Manufacturing of Midway, Fla.
