Blacksher-Miller Lumber Company 2-6-0 "Mogul" Locomotives of the USA


Class Details by Steve Llanso of Sweat House Media

Class Agnes Lee (Locobase 12119)

Data from Baldwin Locomotive Works Specification for Engines,as digitized by the DeGolyer Library of Southern Methodist University Vol 19, p. 143. Works number was 14088 in September 1894.

Wood-burning Mogul that served several lumber companies. 99 left B-M for Lovelace Lumber in December 1903. Locobase suspects that the wheelbase given in the Baldwin specs and repeated in this entry is for the rigid portion. 7 ft 3 inches seems awfully short, expedially for a locomotive with such a long boiler.

Lovelace rebuilt the engine to standard gauge in 1905 and sold it P M Ikeler by August 1907

Mississippi lumberman P M Ikeler's purchase makes sense when you think of a light-footed Mogul running on 20- and 35-lb/yard rail. The logging road ran about 12 miles and had been dubbed by his predecessor the Albertson Great Eastern.
