Live Oak, Perry & Gulf 4-6-0 "Ten-Wheeler" Locomotives in the USA


Class Details by Steve Llanso of Sweat House Media

Class 101 (Locobase 14152)

Data from Baldwin Locomotive Works Specification for Engines as digitized by the DeGolyer Library of Southern Methodist University Volume 48, p. 272. Baldwin works number was 40630 in September 1913.

This wood-burner sported an 18" diameter Radley & Hunter stack to arrest the myriad sparks that otherwise might torch surrounding timber. It was acquired new.
