All of these locomotives were delivered to the Trout Creek company, which had several saw mills in Trout, Louisiana. The 1's price was $8,235 in 1904. The second engine, which cost $8,600 in 1906, was lettered for the Louisiana & Arkansas Railway and numbered 220. The third engine was lettered for the TCLC and was produced more than 16 years after the second and cost $13,344 new. A note in the specs noted that the locomotives used "bad water".
The 1 was sold to Kirby Lumber Company of Silsbee, Tex in 1917 as their #67 and served the KLC for decades. It was scrapped in December 1941.
After 1928, the TCLC was sold to the Louisiana Delta Hardwood Company. The MR account summarizes the volume of logging executed by this company. Its first sawmill day was 1 March 1905 and that mill operated almost continuously until 4 October 1929., During that time, the TCLC processed over 700 million board feet of lumber.
The 2 and 4 moved to the Louisiana Delta Hardwood Lumber Company of Good Pine, La in 1930. The 4 was later sold to the Union Saw Mill Company of Huttig, Ark.
Baldwin's logging Prairies came in several distinct sizes. These wood-burners were of middling size for the light (40 lb/yard or 20 kg/metre) rail of their first owner.
The 1 was later sold to the Weaver Loughridge Lumber of Boyd, Florida.
The 2 would serve several Florida operators. Taylor County sold the 2 to the Brooks Scanlon Lumber Company of Foley. Brooks Scanlon sold the 2 to Manatee Crate Company. Manatee eventually sold the 2 in 1954 to the City of Bradenton, which would put the 2 on display.
