Re: One more Eureka Nevada locomotive question

Randy, After looking in my Porter book from the NMRA I see where your confusion comes from. The Lemuth Porter records I have show that c/n 5637 was built for "HK Porter (demo) E. Pittsburg, PA". Interestingly it shows that the engine was built as a 0-4-0 and rebuilt into a 2-4-4T by Porter before be...

Re: Eureka Nevada 10 - Wheel arraingment?

Randy,

EN #10 was built as a 2-6-4T and was rebuilt in March-May1926 into a 2-6-0 by the Palisade shops. The rebuilt #10 received its tender from EN #7. #7 was not well liked and was out of service and stored outside when the 1927 fire occurred thus sparing the little prarie.

According to Joe Stapac's Cotton Belt Locomotives, The first train on the Tyler Tap RR was pulled by TTRR #1, the "Gov. Hubbard", , built 2-1877. Strapac shows this engine going to Ferroocarril de Zimapan, in Mexico, 12-1887. Wayne Lincoln has this engine as National c/n 232.
