Temple Lumber Company Engine 6
We know little about Temple Lumber Company's Engine 6, shown here in fresh livery sporting a spark-arresting cabbage smokestack on a logging line near Pineland sometime between about 1910 and the 1920s. Texas South-Eastern Railroad purchased the locomotive new from Baldwin Locomotive Works in December 1905. It was a lightweight 2-6-0 Mogul type weighing approximately 38 tons and was used initially in Diboll's logging operations (an American Lumberman cameraman photographed it near Diboll in November 1907), but managers transferred it to Pineland possibly about 1910. We know even less of its ultimate fate.
