Tuckerton 4-6-0 "Ten-Wheeler" Locomotives in the USA


Class Details by Steve Llanso of Sweat House Media

Class 7 (Locobase 13554)

Data from Baldwin Locomotive Works Specification for Engines, 1888, as digitized by the DeGolyer Library of Southern Methodist University Volume 53, p. 400. See Locobase 11649 for a summary of the Tuckerton's history. Works number was 45038 in January 1917.

When the Tuckerton closed in 1936, the Southern New Jersey attempted to revive train travel to the Jersey Shore. Less useful to that effort than other survivors, apparently, the 7 was scrapped in 1938.
