Freeo Valley Railway 2-8-0 "Consolidation" Locomotives in the USA


Class Details by Steve Llanso of Sweat House Media

Class unknown (Locobase 11423)

Data from "Locomotive Building," The Railroad Gazette, Vol XLIII, No 11 (13 September 1907), p 307.

This little Consolidation went to work for the Eagle Lumber Company railway that was based in Ouachita, Ark and connected Eagle Mills with Princeton, Ark. (RG's notice gave Eagle Mills, Louisiana, for some reason). The FVR operated from 1904 to 1927.
