Eureka Nevada 10 - Wheel arraingment?

Post by Randy Hees » Wed Nov 19, 2014 11:46 pm

Myrick in Railroads of Nevada and Eastern California reports that this engine No 10(2nd) was a 2-8-0, Porter, 5893, July 1916, 12x16, 36" drivers, 27 tons, Purchased new, (I would add that in any case, it was one of three engines burned in a 1927 engine house fire)

The NMRA Porter book generally agrees with the above with one significant variation... they report the wheel arrangement as 2-6-4t class 4-C-2-R

Martin Hansen posted a photo on the Narrow Gauge Discussion Forum ... msg-219114 which shows the three burned locomotives sitting in the dead line. No 10 should be the furthest... it does not appear to be a Forney type...

Any thoughts...

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.
