These two Rhodies differed from the batch of ten Moguls delivered in the previous year (Locobase 7550) in having a slightly larger grate and four fewer tubes. In 1893 the MLS&W was taken over by the Chicago & North Western and the two locomotives were renumbered.
In September 1920, the 1012 was sold to the Sever-Anderson Logging Company of Green Bay, Wisconsin.
The 929 remained with the C&NW until it was scrapped in February 1926.
A trio delivered to the MLS&W a few years after the first couple of batches, these were smaller and lighter. In 1893, the MLS&W was taken over by the Chicago & North Western for its Ashland Division.
Thirty years later all three were scrapped in April 1923.
