THE following pages illustrate various types of locomotives, of
both broad and narrow gauges, adapted for logging, plantation, contractors, industrial and
general road service. The principal dimensions which are given in each instance are
intended as a guide in determining the type and class of locomotive, but modifications
call be made in any of the designs shown in order to meet the special requirements
of the purchaser.
The locomotives herewith presented are adapted to the consumption of wood, coke, or
bituminous coal as fuel. With the addition of the necessary appliances ally call be
adapted to burn petroleum.
By the system of manufacture employed, all important parts are accurately made to gauges
and templets; they are, therefore, interchangeable throughout any number of locomotives of
the same class. This system permits of any parts needed for repairs being supplied either
with the locomotive or whenever subsequently required. Such parts are made to the same
gauges and templets as are originally used in the construction of the locomotive, and in
this manner the expense of repairs is reduced to a minimum, and the maintenance of
locomotive power is attended with the least possible inconvenience and delay. It is only
necessary to give the construction number of the locomotive, which is found oil the
builder's number plate, ordinarily attached to the sides of the smokebox, and name the
particular detail which is required. It can then be furnished from the Works at the
shortest notice, guaranteed to fit in place.
