South Georgia & West Coast 4-6-0 "Ten-Wheeler" Locomotives in the USA


Class Details by Steve Llanso of Sweat House Media

Class 101 (Locobase 13568)

Data from Baldwin Locomotive Works Specification for Engines as digitized by the DeGolyer Library of Southern Methodist University Volume 34, p. 203;35, p. 102; and 41, p. 144. Baldwin works numbers were 34905 in July 1910, 35196 in September, 36373 in April 1911.

The third of this trio was diverted from a two-engine order for the Laurinburg & Southern. It was to have worn L & S number 654, but instead was numbered 103 on the SG & WC.
