East Louisiana 4-4-0 "American" Locomotives in the USA

Class Details by Steve Llanso of Sweat House Media

Class 102 (Locobase 12773)

Data from Baldwin Locomotive Works Specification for Engines as digitized by the DeGolyer Library of Southern Methodist University Volume 27, p. 234. Works number was 25789 in June 1906.

Ordered by the East Louisiana, this passenger Eight-wheeler went to another Goodyear timber-interest railroad in western New York. As noted in Locobase 1072, the B&S had a short-lived career as an independent railroad. Its decent into receivership eventually led to the 278's sale to the Toronto, Hamilton & Buffalo as its 16.
