Detroit & Lima Northern 4-6-0 "Ten-wheeler" Locomotives of the USA

Class Details by Steve Llanso of Sweat House Media

Class 67 (Locobase 16236)

Data from Baldwin Locomotive Works Specification for Engines as digitized by the DeGolyer Library of Southern Methodist University Volume 21, p. 77. Works numbers were 15556-15557 in July 1897.

The Baldwin specs show that these two freight Ten-wheelers were to have been numbered 10-11, connoting their proximity to the four Eight-wheelers supplied by Baldwin just months earlier (Locobase 16233).

Both locomotives were off the Detroit, Toledo & Ironton roster by 1918.

NB: Locobase estimates the heating surfaces based on the otherwise identical dimensions (down to the 1/4" in tube length) of the Pearl & Leaf River's #8 from 1902 (Locobase 11747).
