New Orleans Terminal 2-6-0 "Mogul" Locomotives in the USA

Class Details by Steve Llanso of Sweat House Media

Class 109 (Locobase 12741)

Data from Baldwin Locomotive Works Specification for Engines as digitized by the DeGolyer Library of Southern Methodist University Vol 27, p. 172. Works numbers were 24945-24947 in January 1905, 26848 in November, 26965 in December.

All of these stubby Moguls operated on the 19.6-mile belt line until the NOT and its locomotives were taken into the Southern Railways system. The 7081 (ex-109) later was sold to the Columbus & Greenville in 1937 as their #55; it ran until retired in 1945. 7080, 7082-7083 were scrapped, the first in September 1933, the other two in May 1936.

The 7084 (ex-115) went north to the Evansville Suburban & Newburgh as their #10 after the southern Indiana interurban closed down its electric line. [See [], last accessed 4 July 2011 for details on the ES & N.]

Coal still continued come from the Boonville mines for a few years later, but the ES & N was able to show the ICC it should be allowed to abandon its tracks and the commission approved on 4 May 1948. All of the assets, including the #10, were sold to Hyman Michels Company for scrapping.
