Class Details by Steve Llanso of Sweat House Media

Class 5 (Locobase 13481)

Data from Baldwin Locomotive Works Specification for Engines as digitized by the DeGolyer Library of Southern Methodist University, Volume 32, p. 270. Works number was 23849 in March 1904.

The third Baldwin logging Mogul that went to this southeastern Virginia railroad (see Locobase 11486 for the second) was a little smaller but had larger cylinders and a bigger grate in a shallower firebox. Terse notes in the specs tell us that the N & B road had "heavy grades" and "rough track".


Class 6 (Locobase 11486)

Data from Baldwin Locomotive Works Specification for Engines as digitized by the DeGolyer Library of Southern Methodist University, Volume 26, p. 286. Works number was 23849 in March 1904.

This lumber road was based in Stoney Creek, Va, a small town due south of Petersburg.
