Enfield Lumber Company / Eureka Lumber Company 2-6-0 "Mogul" Locomotives of the USA


Class Details by Steve Llanso of Sweat House Media

Class 10 (Locobase 15216)

Data from Baldwin Locomotive Works Specification for Engines as digitized by the DeGolyer Library of Southern Methodist University, Vol 71, pp. 231+. Works numbers were 55388-55389 in May 1922.

These two Moguls were of a size normally associated with narrow-gauge railroads; on the standard gauge they must have seemed toy-like. (By this time, very few North American railroads were built or operated at other than standard gauge.).

ELC was located in northwestern Montana very close to the Canadian border and was founded in 1906


Class 5 (Locobase 12402)

Data from Baldwin Locomotive Works Specification for Engines as digitized by the DeGolyer Library of Southern Methodist University Vol 22, p. 266. Works number was 17583 in March 1900.

The Enfield Lumber Company (North Carolina) was later reorganized as Beaufort Lumber.
