Class Details by Steve Llanso of Sweat House Media

Class William Albert Johnson (Locobase 11573)

Data from Baldwin Locomotive Works Specification for Engines, 1888, as digitized by the DeGolyer Library of Southern Methodist University Vol 15, p. 9. Works number was 9844 in March 1889.

The C & C was a narrow-gauge lumber road owned by the Greenleaf, Johnson & Son Lumber Company. It ran for 9 miles from Howard, NC to Howard Mill and remained open until 1913. At that point, presumably, the 4 went back to Greenleaf Johnson.
