Ozark Lumber Company 4-6-0 "Ten-wheeler" Locomotives of the USA

Class Details by Steve Llanso of Sweat House Media

Class 2 (Locobase 11593)

Data from Baldwin Locomotive Works Specification for Engines as digitized by the DeGolyer Library of Southern Methodist University Vol 15, p. 37. Works number was 9888 in March 1889.

Obviously, this Ten-wheeler was designed for very lighly ballasted rail indeed, even it it was laid on the standard gauge. The engine was later sold to the Wyatt Lumber Company.

NB: The evaporative and direct heating surfaces are an estimate derived from the dimensions of the Carolina Timber Ten-wheeler described in 12992. The firebox dimensions were identical except for 1/2" height differences in front and rear.
